Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

A chewy oatmeal-chocolate chunk cookie is a beautiful thing, and this has become the recipe I go to most often. They use boiling water and baking soda in place of the egg, and are based on a classic from the yellow Best of Bridge book, Enjoy! I like to push a chocolate chunk in the top of each one too, to make sure each cookie gets one, and to make them look extra chocolatey.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugars and vanilla for 1-2 minutes, until pale and light. Stir in the flour and salt (or beat it in on low speed). Stir the baking soda into the boiling water and stir or beat it in too, along with the oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.

    It’s really pride to live confidently with such kind of disability and salute you that you shared your life story. In the society in which we are living people cannot talk about their problems but I hope after reading https://uk.bestessays.com/literature-review.html your story, people can confidently talk about their problems.
