Kitchen Buster Cookies


These are everything you want in a cookie - they are moist, chewy and crispy - in all the right places. Sure you have to get out the food processor, but really, is it that big a deal to clean all those parts? Yes, other cookies do not require you to haul out that appliance, but I'm sure they're not as good. Have I sold you get?

Kitchen Buster Cookies (Chocolate Chip Oatmeal)
not sure where it is from...
scribbled on the back of a receipt and jammed into my recipe box

1 cup butter (1/2 C margarine & 1/2 C butter is you like a less crunchy cookie)
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats, finely ground in blender or food processor
4 oz (about 1/2 cup) milk chocolate, grated or ground in food processor
12 oz (about 1 1/2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups nuts (optional)

Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix in flour one cup at a time just until incorporated. Mix in ground oats, ground chocolate, chocolate chips and nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes until light golden brown.
