“From Sunset's Cookies, cookbook. My DH thinks these are the greatest! I admit that they do make great gifts. From the intro: "Oversized cookies, often best-sellers at fund-raising events, are easy to make at home. [These...] reach a diameter of about 7 inches -- enough cookie to last all day! For variety, you can use butterscotch-flavored chips instead of chocolate."”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl of an electric mixer, until creamy; beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. In separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly.
  3. Add oats, chocolate chips, and nuts; mix well.
  4. Shape each cookie by spooning dough into a 1/2-cup measure, level off, and turn out onto a greased baking sheet. Space cookies a minimum of 6 inches apart and 2 1/2 from edge of baking sheet.
  5. Lightly grease the bottom of a pie pan, dip in granulated sugar, and use to flatten each cookie into a 5 1/2-inch circle. To even each cookie's thickness, press it lightly with your finger, if necessary.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree farenheit oven for about 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Place on baking sheets and allow to cool for 5 minutes; transfer to racks to cool completely.
  7. Store in airtight container.
