Chocolate Chip Cookies for the Non-Observant

I am a bad Jew. Or, at least, a stupid Jew. Maybe just a non-observant one.

Anyway, Friday night I started to crave chocolate chip cookies. I searched in my archives and found a comment someone posted linking to the Doubletree Hotel’s recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Here’s the link!

I was intrigued because the recipe called for: (1) rolled oats; (2) cinnamon; (3) lemon juice. Isn’t that unusual? So I made them:


They were DELICIOUS. Best ever? Oh who knows. I mean, look, if you mix together butter, flour, sugar and chocolate chips and bake it it’s going to taste good, ok? Sure, there’s issues of texture and the chip to dough ratio—these fall into the chewy chippy camp—but in the end hot chocolate chip cookies are fantastic. I liked the complexity that the oats and cinnamon offered here, not sure what the lemon did.

And for any judgmental rabbis reading this, I gave a bunch of cookies to my doorman and haven’t eaten any since late last night!
