$2 Valentine Cookies

Cathy found this recipe a few years ago and I cannot remember where she got it from Danny (my husband) has made a few changes to it over the years. He usually doesn't put pecans in, just the oatmeal. Anyways...make sure it goes in the freezer for a bit. It really makes the difference. 

  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1T. Vanilla
  • 2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped pecans (optional)
  • 3/4 c. melted butter
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 c. oatmeal (optional)
1. Mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside
2. Mix melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until blended thoroughly. Add vanilla egg and egg yolk . Blend until light and creamy
3. Mix in dry ingredients a little at a time until just blended. 
4. Stir in the chocolate chips, pecans and/or oatmeal
5. Chill the dough for about 30-60min or overnight. You could also put it in the freezer to speed up the process...about 15 min.
6. Preheat oven to 325F
7. Bake 15-20 min or until edges are lightly toasted. Do not wait until they are brown all over!
8. Cool on a cookie sheet or rack for crispier cookies.

Enjoy !!
