I modified Beatrice’s Excellent Oatmeal cookies very slightly. I came up with something that my boyfriend went CRAZY over! I’ve never seen him enjoy cookies to that extent! He said I blew his mother’s recipe away.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. 2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. 3 Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Can't give this recipe 5 stars because it took several changes to get the AMAZING cookies that were the final result. My husband is a "cookie monster" & said these very well may be the best cookies ever. Here's what I changed: 1) Added 1/2 extra cup flour (for a grand total of 1 and - Read more ...
  2. This is a really good cookie. Would have given it 5 stars, but did need to increase the flour to 1 3/4 cup and baking soda to 1 teaspoon. If you use margarine or salted butter, DEcrease the salt to 1/4 tsp or just omit altogether. Salt that is suggested in cookie recipes are generally - Read more ...
  3. A good basic cookie, a little heavy on the salt. If your cookies come out flat it is most likely due to over mixing. Cream butter and sugar until very light and fluffy 4 or 5 mins. if you like. Add the dry ingredients and mix by hand just 'till blended. Your cookies will always - Read more ...
  4. These cookies are AMAZING. I have not met one person who did not like them... I change the recipe a bit and use 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of applesauce (healthier, plus it makes the cookies more chewy). Also, I use more flour (1 and 1/2 cups) and don't include nuts. GREAT recipe!
  5. I have made this recipe several times now and just had to come back and write a review. After one batch this became the favorite cookie among friends and family. I add a 1/2 cup more oats and use a mix of chocolate anf butterscotch chips. One other tip - chill the mix for 2 - Read more ...
  6. This was such an awful cookie! I followed the ingredients To the EXACT! the cookies were extremely flat, didnt taste too good, and the edges burnt since the cookie turned so flat. I would most definately never make these cookies again. I made 42 cookies and it turned into 3 large flat cookie slabs, and - Read more ...
  7. Good, but the cookie ended up flat, I added 1/4 cup more flour, 1/2 teaspoon more baking soda, and 1/2 tsp less salt the second time and they came out perfect! YOu must do these adjustments or you will probably have a flat cookie.
  8. Excellent, excellent recipe! I've tried several oatmeal cookie recipes and this one definitely is the best. Kudos to the creator. I did modify it a bit because I'm always looking for shortcuts. Instead of doing the individual cookie thing I baked the recipe in 2 cake pans at 350 for about 25-30 minutes and the - Read more ...
  9. I did as suggested in other reviews and increased the flour by 1/2 cup and baking soda by 1/2 tablespoon, cut the salt to 1/2 tsp. This made the absolutely best cookies ever!! I made them this afternoon thinking they'd last the rest of the week. No way! Between my husband and two children, they'll - Read more ...
