Why These Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies Tend To Taste So Great
You know that an Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie has been an absolute success when it has these three characteristics – a slow bend, a chewy texture and it is ultra soft. These cookies turn out to have a slightly crispy edge, along with a soft center and are chewy enough to not break immediately, when you try bending it. The “slow bend” is what separates a good Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie from a great one and these particular cookies have that characteristic in spades. These cookies are also extremely soft and feel hearty enough once you’ve finished eating. Owing to their brown sugar content they have a flavorful base and are supremely buttery. The old-fashioned oats put in, gives them their super-chewy texture. Putting in both regular and mini chocolate chips, guarantees more chocolate in each bite, making for the best cookie ever. Lastly, everyone has that memory of how “grandma used to make them’. Adding 1 Tablespoon of Molasses makes these cookies seem like the ones grandma used to make back in the day.
So make the most delicious, chewy and bendy Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies and enjoy them with the whole family. These cookies are sure to satiate your taste buds’ cravings and bring a smile on the face of whoever eats it.
