Schmoops had 3 friends over today and they each ate at least 4, a couple ate 5, of these.

- 1 cup flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 6 oz chocolate chips, preferably a mix of semi and bittersweet
- 3 oz toffee chips, such as Heath's Bits O'Brickle
- ½ cup pecans or walnuts
- Cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy.

- If you want to you can grind the oats in a food processor, or just add them whole. Whisk together oats, flour, baking powder and soda, salt.
- Combine butter mixture with the flour mixture.
- Add all your chunky items and optional items.
- Roll into 1 inch balls, do not flatten into discs, bake at 375 F for 10 - 12 mins depending on how done you like your cookies.
Last year I vacationed in L.A. with my family and when we checked into our hotel room they handed each of us a cookie. If you watch any Food Network you’ve probably heard of the supposedly delicious Levain chocolate chip walnut cookie. Those are terrible. I have no idea why anyone likes a freakish brick of a cookie that is too high in flour content.
I had never heard of the Doubletree cookie before but I’m tempted to call them the perfect chocolate chip cookie. I don’t know how they keep them at the perfect temperature for every guest, so that the chips are gooey, the cookie is slightly warm, the whole thing is still soft. Since then I’ve looked them up on the internet and they seem to be an establishment. There are a couple of “copycat” recipes out there and this is my version.
