Do as Jana does: Tie on an apron, put on a Patsy Cline record, and whip up some of these chewy cookies. Ground oats and chopped pecans give them great texture, and a grated milk chocolate bar gives the chocolate morsels an extraordinary boost.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Pulse oats in food processor until finely ground. Whisk together flour, next 3 ingredients, and ground oats in a large bowl.

Step 2

Beat butter and next 2 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Step 3

Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in chocolate morsels and next 2 ingredients.

Step 4

Drop dough by level spoonfuls 2 inches apart onto 2 parchment paper-lined jelly-roll pans, using a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop. Flatten each to a 2-inch circle.

Step 5

Bake at 375° for 8 to 10 minutes or until browned. Cool on pans 2 to 3 minutes; transfer to wire racks.
