Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Position two oven racks to divide the oven into thirds; preheat oven to 350°; line cookie sheets with foil.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a big bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter.
  4. Add in vanilla and both sugars; beat well.
  5. Add in egg; beat well.
  6. On low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients and beat, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula, until incorporated.
  7. Remove bowl from mixer; stir in oats and then chocolate morsels and nuts (dough will be rather stiff).
  8. Use a well-rounded teaspoonful of the dough to make each cookie; place the mounds 2 inches apart on the foil.
  9. Bake for about 18 minutes until the cookies are golden-colored and completely dry.
  10. During baking reverse the sheets top to bottom and front to back to insure even browning.
  11. Transfer cookies to racks to cool.
