Fabulous Cookie Recipe!!

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.

Its my Christmas Tradition to put these five ornaments on my tree first. They were handmade by my grandparents. My grandpa Buggs cut all the wood pieces and glued them together and my grandma Gidge painted them and added all the details.
They are the most precious ornaments I own.
