The first time I saw Pleasantville, I had a single complaint about what is otherwise a masterpiece: how could Margaret possibly instigate a classic alpha-male catfight over cookies that didn't contain chocolate? Nevertheless, her oatmeal cookies earned her town-wide fame and Toby Maguire's young heart. I had to figure out what could be so special about oatmeal cookies. I think this recipe might come close to her heart-stealers. The malted milk powder and ground walnuts give the cookies a more grown-up flavor, and the sea salt on top really puts them over the edge.
