These were allright. Not what I was looking for, I guess. My fiance has been craving choc. chip cookies lately. Yesterday was our 1 yr. proposal anniversarry (we are getting married this fall!!), so I decided to surprise him w/ a batch of his favorite cookie. I was planning to try Mrs. Fields cookie I (it's been in my recipe box for a while), but the grated choc. in this recipe intrigued me, so I decided on this instead. FYI, Sonnia's recipe is IDENTICAL to Renee Kratz's urban legend cookie recipe, sans a few (minor) changes. The main difference b/t the two is how the oatmeal is used. I like it in powdered form better, but wouldn't use as much of it next time (I'd use more regular flour instead). Having said that, prep was a LOT of work, but worth the effort, IMHO. I 1/2'd this recipe, and b/c of that, only needed to "pulverize" 2.5 c. oatmeal. I found that add. in increments & using the liquefy (yes, liquefy) button on my KA mixer worked best. I only had semi-sweet choc. baking pcs. on hand, so I gave those a whirl (chop) in my blender too. I used my PC grater for my (COLD = easier to grate) choc. bars & it worked really well! And, I too mix. my dough by hand (no need to chill 1st). My only other ch. was to omit the nuts (don't like them) & use my 3 T scoop (which produced slightly lgr. than golf ball sized cookies). Baking for 9 min. & allowing to "rest" for 5 produced soft, chewy cookies. All in all, these were OK, but not better than plain choc. chip cookies. Thx., Sonia!
