Don't know how this cookie got it's name but it certainly is a very good cookie. I first made this cookie about 15 years ago and fell in love with the taste & texture. I got the recipe from a coworker, and have used it ever since. I also made these cookies for a Church Bake sale, & ran out, so every one loved the moist & chewy goodness. I just bet you will too. In other parts of the country is has many other names, but no matter what you call them, you are sure to be pleased with the taste.I only bake with butter, I feel it enhances the flavor of the baked good.

Ingredients

3 stick
butter or margarine, room temperature
2 c
white sugar
2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
4 large
eggs, room temperature
2 tsp
vanilla extract (i usually add more)
1 tsp
salt
1/4 c
evaporated milk
2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
baking powder
4 c
all purpose flour
4 c
old fashioned oats, pulverized into flour in food processor

hershey chocolate chips (1- 11 1/2 oz. bag)

white chocolate chip pieces

Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 7 to 12 minutes, until lightly golden in color with tiny cracks on top of cookies. Leave on cookie sheet about 5 minutes, when you remove from oven they will continue to cook.

NOTE: I USUALLY ADD MORE RAISINS & NUTS THAN WHAT IS CALLED FOR IN RECIPE. But that is a matter of preference. YOU CAN ALSO CUT THIS RECIPE IN HALF. Also note because We prefer a much softer & chewy cookie, I only bake them for 9 minutes.

Thanks Cindy, I am trying to get around to adding more of my pix to my recipes. For Mother's Day I should have quite a few. I plan to cook because my daughter is coming home. So my menu is based around many of the recipes that I do not have pictures too, with about 3 new ones added all together.
