I’ve been dreaming of this cookie for a long time. You know when you taste something, and in your mind it was the best thing you’ve ever tasted, and you try your hardest to recreate it? Well that’s what this cookie has been to me. Years ago I was in lovely grocery store (somewhere in SLC) and I purchased a cookie that was called the Everything Cookie. It was so chuck full of all things good, and happy. The cookie itself was an oatmeal based cookie, but then it was filled with all sorts of chocolate, raisins, nuts, coconut. It was delicious! I loved it! I’ve thought about this cookie for a long time, and I think I came up with a pretty good rendition of it. I combined a few of my favorite cookie recipes, and tricks and came up with something James deemed “incredible”. (really he just likes me………alot!)
The cookie base is the Neiman Marcus $250 Cookie. There’s a whole story behind this recipe. Here’s a link. I love the ground oatmeal in this cookie, and personally I think it is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe around. I added raisins, slivered almonds, semi sweet chips, milk chocolate chips, coconut, and a big couple of handfuls of Corn Flakes. I love the Corn Flakes in the cookies. It just adds a little something happy to them. Next time I’m going to add some Craisins, or dried blueberries as well. White chips, or PB chips would be yummy too. Give it a go, and scoop them big. There’s something about a big giant cookie:) Enjoy!!
