You need to prepare,
♦ 1 bar of butter ( please choose a good plain butter for baking)
♦ 2 Cups of Brown sugar ( other people uses 1 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of brown sugar. But for me i always use 2 cups of brown sugar It intensifies the flavor and adds more color to your cookies: and please packed them when measuring)
♦ 2 large eggs
♦ 1 TSP of vanilla
♦ 2 Cups all purpose flour
♦ 1 TSP Baking powder
♦ 1 TSP Baking soda
♦ 1 TSP Salt
♦ 2 Cups old fashioned oats ( please buy Quick cooking)
♦ 1 bar of bittersweet chocolate
First you need to provide 1 large mixing bowl, Cream the butter using a wooden spoon when the butter is mashed up or soft that's enough. (I used to say to mom when the butters ready " MA!!! the butter is already mashed up!!!" )
Next, add the sugar and continue creaming them until you get a brown soft mixture. Beat in the eggs and add the vanilla. I use a handheld mixer for an easier handle of the mixture ( I can't stand on manual mixing my hand gets hurt too :P)
Then add the flour slowly ( you don't want to be floured in the face when the mixer starts to mix don't you? ) allow the flour to incorporate with the wet mixture, add the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then add all the oats.
Place your cookie mixture in the refrigerator not in the freezer for about 25-30 minutes enough to have a thick creamed mixture for easy handling. 25-30 minutes is maybe enough for cleaning your messed working area.
Prepare baking sheets and drop rounded tablespoonfuls two in. apart unto your baking sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15-25 minutes chunky and brown enough.
Cool on wire racks.
It makes about 45-60 pcs ( depending on how small or large you make them)
TO ADD THE CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE:
Melt the bittersweet chocolate on a double broiler ( you could use any kind of chocolate the sweet one, semisweet, white chocolate etc.)
Just lower down your heat enough to melt the chocolate and not to burn them of anything.
Place your melted chocolate in a piping bag and use the tip with the smallest hole.
Enjoy drizzling the cookie with the melted chocolate on your own perceptions.
Allow the chocolate drizzle to cool.
SERVE AND SHARE WITH YOUR BEST SMILE :)
