Crunchy Chip Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

This is undoubtedly one of the most unusual oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies I've ever made and it just might be one of the best. But you'll agree with me only if: 1) You don't expect this to be like a traditional oatmeal cookie, 2) You like lots of chewy texture and crunch rather than merely a soft cookie and 3) You like chow mein noodles. If that's you, read further. I made these considerably bigger than the teaspoon sized cookies directed in the instructions because I believed with all the chunky ingredients going on in this cookie that this was going to be a heftier, more substantial cookie. I also was nervous about the long chow mein noodles and how they'd make the cookie look. I didn't want to take a chance of them sticking out all over the place so I broke them up into smaller pieces before stirring them into the dough. Glad I made that call. I used old-fashioned oats, which is what I happened to have in the pantry, and that contributed even more texture, as if these weren't chock full of it already. Toasting the pecans adds great flavor, so I'd suggest not skipping that extra step. The saltiness of the chow mein noodles and the sweetness of the chocolate chips provided an interesting contrast. Finally, only because I'm a little sick of semi-sweet chocolate chips, I used milk chocolate chips. My huge, bakery-sized cookies took about 13 minutes to bake. A most unique cookie that will have people wondering what makes it so different!

The best cookies ever! I took these to a family outing and got joking comments that I should patent them! I can now add these to the list of things people ask me to bring. They were perfect, thanks for sharing the recipe.

I made this recipe out of curiosity and because I actually had all this stuff on hand. At first it seemed like an ordinary cookie recipe. By the time I had added most of the "stir-ins" at the end, I began to speculate about the possibility of its being a practical joke in recipe form. It's very hard to stir it all in. But I wasn't quitting so close to baking, and sure enough, they actually work! And they're good. I may mash up the noodles next time for ease in spooning out the dough, and as one of my kids told me, the 1/2 cup of pecans is really unnecessary unless you love them that much. Walnut might match the taste better, I dunno. I did make one change I always make to chip cookies... I used a mixture of different chips, caramel, butterscotch, striped and semi-sweet. I don't necessarily recommend that, depends on the tastes of the eaters.
