Secret Recipe Chocolate Chip Cookies

Secret Recipe Chocolate Chip Cookies

½ cup rolled oats, regular or quick

2 ¼ cups flour

1 ½ tsp. baking soda, ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. cinnamon

1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)

¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar

¾ cup sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

 1 tsp. lemon juice

2 eggs

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350F.  Cover baking sheets with parchment paper.  Place rolled oats in blender and process until finely ground.  Combine ground oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in mixing bowl.

In another bowl, cream butter, sugar, vanilla and lemon juice together using mixer.  Add eggs and beat until fluffy.

Stir in flour mixing into egg mixture, blending well.  Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix well.  Using ¼ cup of dough for cookie, scoop round balls with an ice-cream scoop and place 2 ½ inches apart on baking sheets. (Or use the medium ice cream scoop, which holds 1 ½ Tbsp. of dough, that’s the scoop I use.  Bake them for 13 – 15 minutes on 350F.)  Bake until cookies are lightly browned, 16 to 18 minutes.  Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.  Store in a sealed container to keep them soft and chewy.
