Clementine's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

"My new fave! Printed on the back of the Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chip bag. They are different than the other recipes posted. The baking aroma is enough to start you drooling. The cookie recipe made exactly as many as it said it would. Tended to fall apart easily as I took them off the cookie sheet so be cautious. Simply scrumptious. They do harden substantially as they "set up". I would highly encourage the lower/lowest baking time. Up to you, forewarned though..."

    These are amazing!! My store was out of semi-sweet chocolates so I used Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips. I also used Quick Oats. These cookies were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside=perfect!! I love the flavor given by the walnuts!

    The taste was AMAZING (worth all 5 stars) but I had a little trouble with the texture and end result. I baked at 375 for 9 minutes on the middle rack in the oven. My cookies came out flat, very greasy, almost unbaked in the middle, but crispy on the edges and very dark back sides. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong??

    An excellent chocolate chip cookie and a terrible time to learn that my oven runs hot by 75 degrees! The first batch was badly burned. The remaining batches were just awesome. I doubt I will make these too often though as they last less than half the time most cookies do in this house. LOL I'd be making them every second day. Thanks for posting!

    Made these for my very picky cook / significant other and he LOVED them! <br/>This is an easy recipe, but I wanted extra chewy cookies. Best results I got were with 1/3 more flour and using an oven that runs a little hotter then most, set to 375 for exactly 9 minutes. You could even get away with fewer chips- but who are we kidding?

    Excellent flavor, texture and not too spicy. I skipped the nutmeg just because I don't personally like it. I also used dried cranberries in place of chocolate. Everything else was the same. The cookies baked up perfect at 11 minutes...crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle. Thanks NcMysteryShopper for the recipe.
