OK, it's time to share a REALLY good recipe! :-D


  • 1 c. Brown Sugar
  • 1 c. Granulated Sugar
  • 1 c. Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 Tbs. Milk
  • 2 c. Flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 c. Old Fashioned Oatmeal
  • 1 12oz. bag chocolate chips ( caramel swirl chips are best, if you can find them, or 1/2 choc chips 1/2 butterscotch chips 
  • are also good)


-Preheat oven to 350.

-Beat butter and sugars together till creamy.

-Add eggs, vanilla and milk, mix well.

-Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

-Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix well.

-Stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips.

Drop a heaping tablespoons of dough onto silpat or parchment-lined baking sheets.

Butter the bottom of a glass and then dip the glass into turbinado sugar. Press sugared glass onto each cookie to slightly flatten. Re-dip glass in sugar before pressing each cookie.

Bake ten minutes or until edges are brown. I like these to be well caramelized for extra crunch. These are crispy cookies and VERY delish. The large sugar crystals on the top of the cookies add such a wonderful crunch.
When cookies are done, remove to rack to cool and store in a child and mom-proof safe. Try not to eat the whole batch.

You can also add nuts and/or shredded coconut, if you like. If you add coconut, the cookies will lose their yummy crunch, though.
