I came across this recipe while I was in a cooking class in Jr. High way back in the amazing year 1985. I'm glad I found it here so I can keep it the rest of my recipes on allrecipes.com.
The story that I was told went something like this: there was this woman who went to Mrs. Fields and wanted the recipe and was charged $250 for it. She paid for it and was upset that it cost her so much money that she made copies of it and gave it to all her friends. One of her friends just happened to be my instructor.
Right. I'm sure that all happened.
Anyway, this recipe is great. In my most humble opinion, any one who has commented that this recipe isn't any good did something wrong. Maybe they over baked them, maybe they didn't grind the oatmeal in to a powder or maybe they didn't pack the brown sugar. Who knows? To those people I say, "try again".
There's only one ingredient that I do a variation of in my cookies. That is, I never use chocolate "chips". I buy dark chocolate bars (whatever is on sale - Trader Joes has some large chocolate bars that work very well) and chop them up. I think by doing this you get a better flavor profile as well as cookies that look more custom due to all the different shapes of the chocolate pieces as opposed the same looking chocolate chips.
That's my story. Try this recipe.
