Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep time 20 mins
Bake time 10 mins
Yield Makes 4 dozen
A crisp outside, soft middle, hint of chocolate, and combo of nuts make this one remarkable cookie. It took first prize in the chocolate chip cookie category in a previous festival and remains a favorite treat in many Eureka Springs kitchens.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

How to Make It

  1. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add egg and vanilla, beating until combined.

  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in oats and remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
