Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

While looking through Maida Heatter's Book of Great Chocolate Desserts this recipe for a Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie caught my eye. I had not made a Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie. It is a very nice cookie, I think next time though I would cook them about 2 minutes less, they were a little to crisp for me.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


2/3 cup unbleached flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
5 1/2 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup milk
2 1/2 cups large flake oatmeal


Preheat oven 350ยบ.
Line the cookie sheets with aluminum foil.

In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa, whisk this. Set aside.

In mixer bowl cream butter until light.
Add vanilla extract and sugar, beat this mixture well.
Add egg and beat until smooth.
On low speed gradually add 1/2 flour mixture.
Add milk.
Then add the remaining flour mixture.
Scrap down the sides of the bowl.
Beat this until mixture until smooth.
Take bowl off and add oatmeal and mix until evenly incorporated.
Take medium sized ice cream scoop and place 2" apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for about 18 minutes.
Let cookies cool, then place on cooling rack.

Makes about 24 cookies.

Like the look of this cookie. Like the small amount of flour compared to the amount of oatmeal.
