"The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies"
This recipe makes about 12-15 good-sized cookies, like the ones you see at expensive bakeries. I like to double the recipe because there never seems to be enough. I also like to use mini chocolate chips for half the amount of chocolate. In addition to the ingredients, you'll also need some baking basics: an oven, cookie sheets, bowls, cup measures, and a hand or stand mixer. Because Heath Bar Crunch pieces contain nuts (almonds), these cookies are only for people who can eat nuts. They are equally good without the Heath Bar Crunch pieces, just double up on the chocolate chips!

To make your cookies, you'll need:
¼ pound softened butter (one stick)
½ cup dark brown sugar (packed)
½ cup granulated sugar
1 egg
¾ teaspoon vanilla
1 1/8 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (half a bag)
1 cup Heath Bar Crunch pieces

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Cream the butter really well with the mixer—sometimes this takes a few minutes—then gradually add the two sugars, beating until light and smooth. This means that you won't be able to see the individual grains of sugar anymore. Remember that brown sugar needs to be packed down into the cup measure.
3. Beat in the egg and vanilla for about 30 seconds.
4. Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl and add it to the first mixture, blending well.
5. Stir in the oatmeal, chocolate chips, and bits of Heath Bar Crunch. At this point, I always have to switch to stirring by hand so I don't burn out my mixer.
6. Drop by ¼ cups onto the cookie sheets, leaving about 1 inch between each cookie so they can spread out, and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. After I take the cookies out of the oven, I like to let them cool for a couple minutes on the cookie sheet before I lift them off. This makes it easier to get them off in one piece.
7. Enjoy your cookies! They make great gifts, too—just make sure the recipient can eat nuts—and people are always impressed that you made them yourself.
