Chocolate Chip and Oat Biscuits

    27 minutes

    Chocolate chips liven up what is otherwise a wonderful oat and walnut biscuit. I love these with hot chocolate on cold winter days.

    A good basic cookie, a little heavy on the salt. If your cookies come out flat it is most likely due to over mixing. Cream butter and sugar until very light and fluffy 4 or 5 mins. if you like. Add the dry ingredients and mix by hand just 'till blended. Your cookies will always stay nice and full. Over baking can also cause your cookies to flatten out. Cookies will continue to bake after taken from the oven so don't over do it.  -  29 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I did as suggested in other reviews and increased the flour by 1/2 cup and baking soda by 1/2 tablespoon, cut the salt to 1/2 tsp. This made the absolutely best cookies ever!! I made them this afternoon thinking they'd last the rest of the week. No way! Between my husband and two children, they'll be gone by tomorrow night. They're fantastic. I'll make these alot!  -  25 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made this recipe several times now and just had to come back and write a review. After one batch this became the favorite cookie among friends and family. I add a 1/2 cup more oats and use a mix of chocolate anf butterscotch chips. One other tip - chill the mix for 2 hours prior to baking and the cookies won't spread. FANTASTIC!  -  12 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
