MR Tanner's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Maury Tanner makes these cookies almost every Sunday. He is the master of this recipe and his taste perfect every time. They are chewy on the inside with a little crunch on the outside. There are a few details to the recipe that MUST be followed in order to get the perfect cookie. These might be my new favorite cookies!

4 sticks unsalted butter at room temp.
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
5 cups oatmeal
4 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Then, add room temp. eggs one at a time. Add vanilla, soda, powder, salt and oatmeal. Add cups of flour one cup at a time. Last, mix in chocolate chips. Bake at 400 for 11 min. Remove from oven and let sit on cookie sheet for 6 more minutes. Then place cookies on cookie rack to cool. Yum! I'm eating one as I type this!

*I halved the recipe and baked mine at 375 and still got a great result.

I've never baked cookies at 400 degrees...interesting. Doesn't seem like enough chocolate chips for that huge recipe. But I had the ones you made and they were fabulous, so I guess I better give these a try!

Are you supposed to let the eggs sit out before using them?

I think the 400 degree temp helps make them get crunchy quickly on the outside, while leaving the inside nice and chewy. These sound good and I think I will use my largest cookie scoop to make them nice and big! Thanks, Holl!
