Cookie Panel- Again


This week for Wednsdays Cookie Panel (sorry for you religious followers, as I am a day late) we munched on some delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies from a recipe submitted by Laurel. Two main differences in these cookies were that #1 there was Crisco in the recipe and #2 the way you add the ingredients. But I have to say... SO EASY. Caleb graced us this week with an official score sheet. It was amazing I must say, and when we are all done with this, I will post the results here for you all to see, compare, contrast, and examine.

Anyway, this weeks cookies did good accross the board, scoring numbers mostly in the 7's and 8's. Nice size, texture, visualy appealing... The dough was good normal cookie dough, and they were good plain or with milk. The one thing about these cookies is that they were much better warm right out of the oven. So at the panel we tried them normal, and then heated them up in the microwave for about 10 seconds and everyone agreed- better warm. Comparing these to the other oatmeal recipe that we have already tested (Maury's Famous Sunday Cookies) they were both good and about on the same playing feild, accept that these ones were much easier and less finicky to make. Three cheers for Laurels cookies. Try them for yourself!


Laurels Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

2c Flour
1c Sugar
1c Light Brown Sugar
1 tsp B Soda
1 tsp Salt
1/2c Crisco
1/2c Butter
2 Eggs
2c Otamel
1c Semi-Sweet Choc Chips

Add all of the ingredients from the top to the bottom (which is kind of backwards, but pay no attention to that!) Dump it and mix it without mixing the wet ingredients together first. I added the oats and the choc chips after mixing the rest. Bake at 375 for 10-11 minutes.

What's funny is that, just like Maury and Wendy, there is a family rivalry between Laurel and Rachel too, both thinking their version is better. Quite funny, but when I bake, I always use Laurel's recipe. Definitely easier and just as good as any!

Have you tried baking them on a pampered chef stone? I think it makes a huge difference. You should try it. You have to bake them a little longer though, but its worth it!

Ok, so long story short, in a way, you inspired my own serious are you about this whole thing? I have some information you might find...interesting.
Scroll way down--Emily and I made the first Neiman Marcus recipe today and they're pretty darn good, but I really want to try the second one, called the "real neiman marcus recipe." Anyway, there were some good tips on ingredients, etc.
