DOUBLETREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1/2 cup rolled oats
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon juice
3 cups semi-sweet, chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Grind oats in food processor or blender until fine. Combine ground oats with flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in medium bowl.
Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in another medium bowl with electric mixer. Add eggs and mix until smooth. Stir dry mixture into wet mixture and blend well. Add chocolate chips and nuts to dough and mix by hand until ingredients are well blended.
For best results, chill dough overnight in refrigerator before baking cookies.
Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto ungreased cookie sheet. Place scoops about 2 inches apart.
Bake in 350°F oven for 16-18 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in middle.
Store in sealed container when cool to keep soft.
