These are the cookies my mom bakes every week for a treat for our patients at our office! They are Fantastic!
Gaskell Chocolate Chip Cookies Preheat oven 350 degrees Mix together the following dry ingredients: 2 ¼ cups flour 1 ½ cups chopped walnuts ½ cup old fashion oatmeal 1 ½ tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. Salt 1 tsp. Cinnamon ½ tsp. Allspice ½ tsp. Nutmeg ½ tsp. Cloves Mix together the following in separate bowl: 1 cup butter 2 eggs (extra large) 1 tsp. Vanilla 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 cup white sugar Blend the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Dough will be rather thick. Mix in the following: 3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips Make any size cookies you wish. I have found that a ball or dough (3 tablespoons) baked for 13 minutes at 350 is nice. Most importantly, to make a cookie that is soft in the middle, take the cookies out of the oven as soon as they are barely brown. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes to set before removing them and place on a cooling rack.
