Legally Grand Cookies!

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

Lawyers, they say, are known for their attention to details. And for the many great legal minds, they have brought this attribute into the kitchen as well. I am falling short in that respect yet (and also in height! haha) as I have stayed away from the kitchen most of my life. Lately though, I am becoming such a baker! Maybe in a week, there are two days I would just stay home and bake cookies for my nieces and nephews and for friends who allow themselves to be the guinea pigs!

So with the cookies, I started small...

then made them a little bigger...

then comes the monster cookies...I call them legally grand cookies!!!

Because I always lose the faxed recipe, I am putting it here (for my own consumption haha).

Choc-Oat Chip Cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups QUAKER Oats (quick or old fashioned) uncooked
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)
2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels


Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs, milk and vanilla. beat well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Stir in oats, chocolate morsels and nuts. mix well.
Drop by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 9 to 10 minutes for a chewy cookie or 12to 13 minutes for a crisp cookie.
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet,remove cookies to a wire rack. Cool completely.
