Fall Into Flavor

It's baaaack! Lid at 2nd Cup of Coffee has brought back one of my favorite memes from last year. We're starting today, but then moving to Mondays for a total of 5 weeks to share some of our favorite recipes for this time of year. Lidna's only requirement is that they be full of flavor and not skimp on the butter, cream, or other rich ingredients!

I ran out of time to get mine posted this morning, but I promise it's worth the weight wait! I've only made these once or twice because whew! They are wicked-good. They make a ton, which either gives you plenty to hoard or makes them ideal for a party or a cookie swap. I think I originally got this recipe from a Southern Living magazine years ago.

Dipped Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Nut Cookies

1 1/2 c. regular oats
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet morsels
3 (1.5 oz.) bars milk chocolate, grated
1 1/2 c. chopped pecans
12 oz. chocolate candy coating

Finely grind oats. (I use my little food processor.) Set aside. Beat butter at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugars, beating well. Add eggs & vanilla; mix well. Combine ground oats, flour and next 3 ingredients. Gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in chocolate morsels, grated chocolate, and pecans. Drop by teaspoons onto greased or parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool.

Melt chocolate candy coating. Dip 1/2 of each cookie in melted chocolate and place on wax paper until set. Makes 9 dozen.

Come join us at Lidna's and share your own recipes!

At my house we said, "No more! Smaller plates. Healthier foods. More salad." And the next day Lidna starts this meme!
