have a cookie.

Randomly just now, I thought: cookies are good. And when pondering that eternal truth I remembered that I had a cookie recipe in docs that I'd written for someone.

Black and White Cookies
aka Masochistic Hedgehog Cookies


1 large egg
1 stick softened butter

Then add & blend:

1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
7 tablespoons of brown sugar

Then add & blend:

6 1/2 tablespoons of flour

Then add & mix in with a spoon:

1 1/2 cups rolled oats (e.g., Quaker Old Fashioned)
5-6 oz of baker's semi-sweet chocolate

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

Secret tip #1: Use blocks of baker's chocolate and chop them up with a small knife. You get largish irregular chunks, which improve the overall texture. It takes some time, though.

Secret tip #2: Shape the cookies more or less into balls for a thicker cookie; if you flatten the dough the cookies aren't as coherent (because of all the oatmeal).

Note: This makes a rather small batch, especially if you lean towards larger-sized cookies. You can easily double the recipe though.
