Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies


For the gastronomically challenged, this recipe guarantees success with a minimum of time, energy or effort. Take 1½ cups of flour, a pinch of salt and sugar, two sticks of butter and one egg and pulse in a food processor until mixed. In a bowl take 2 cups of oatmeal with 1 cup of raisins and mix with the dough from the food processor (it’ better to mix by hand). Form the cookies with your hands to the size you’d like. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until brownish. Remove from baking sheet to cool. Now melt 4 ounces of chocolate (I prefer 60% cocoa), and when the cookies are cold dip one side into the melted chocolate. Place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate to harden the chocolate. In the summer I keep the cookies in the fridge to keep the chocolate from melting. The combination of oatmeal, raisons and chocolate is a bit out of the ordinary and very tasty, to the point where my husband is showing a slightly unhealthy obsession.
