Val Petty of Adelia Gourmet Mixes knows how to convert one’s so-so day to a “GOURMET” day. Mixes of Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, Blondies and Brownies just got to be the best-sellers of Adelia online stores. I’ve never made chocolate chip cookies from a packaged mix, so I was just loving the so easy steps and so few ingredients (and no measurements needed) to bake oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. A stick of butter, one egg and splash of vanilla — yup, I got all of ’em, so on with the creaming, scooping dough and baking these “one-bowl method” gourmet cookies. It was such a treat…in less than 15 minutes I was biting/munching/indulging on baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. And my rating — A + for ADDICTING.

Blondies and Brownies gotta wait…am enjoying my Adelia’s gourmet cookies for now.
And what a coincidence — I was emptying contents of a bag of flour onto my canister and found this recipe at the “back of the box” — Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Not probably as “gourmet-tasting” as that of Adelia, but a recipe is a recipe….here it is:
from: Baker’s Corner
Product: All-purpose Flour
BOB RECIPE: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In large bowl, mix brown sugar and butter until blended. Beat in vanilla and egg until light and fluffy. Mix in oats, flour and baking soda; stir in chocolate chips and chopped walnuts (optional).
Drop tablespoons of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake 9 – 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Once cookies are cooled, store in an airtight container.
