At a very early age my mother taught my brothers and I how to bake. Instead of getting sweets in our lunches for school, the three of us each had to bake a batch on Sunday night for the upcoming week. On rare occasions we’d share, but for the most part better research and planning beforehand translated into better lunches. Fast forward to today – there is still a special place in my heart for homemade cookies. They don’t last long with Steph and I, so we try to make a batch as often as often as we can.

Here’s one of our favorite recipes, Chocolate Oat Chippers (Borrowed from an old “Company’s Coming” cookbook from my childhood):

Company's Coming - Chocolate Oat Chippers

Step 1.

  • 1/2 Cup – Butter or hard margarine, softened (at room temperature)
  • 1 Cup – Brown sugar, packed
  • 1 – Large egg
  • 1/2 tsp. – Vanilla flavoring

Step 2.

  • 1 Cup – All-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup – Quick rolled oats
  • 1/2 Tsp. – Baking soda
  • 1/4 Tsp. – Salt
  • 1 Cup – Semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Cup – Chopped Walnuts (optional, pecans work great too)

Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 350?C. Put the butter/margarine into a large bowl. Add the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

Step 2 – Mix the rest of the ingredients in. Roll into ~18 – 2.5-3cm balls and place them ~5cm apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

In case that isn’t straight forward enough, here’s a stop-motion of the whole process.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. And please, share your favorite cookie recipes in the comments!

    Ahh, Ben… you noticed. In the stop motion, I didn’t have any of the chocolate chips. Fortunately the cookies are still great without them.

    Nothing gets past you!
