NCL All-Star cookies (National Cooking League)


  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (8 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped (3 ounces)


  1. Preheat oven 375 degrees.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl with electric mixer, mix butter and sugars on low speed until blended, about 1 minute.
  3. Mix in eggs and vanilla until well mixed, about 1 minute.
  4. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and ginger.  Mix on low speed until combined, about 1 minutes.
  5. Add oats, chips, raisins, and nuts.  Mix on low until incorporated.
  6. Drop batter from 2 ounces (2-inch) ice cream scoop or by rounded tablespoons about 1 1/2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes only.  The edges will be crisp, but the centers will be soft.  They will look underdone but will firm up considerably as they cool.
  8. Immediately remove to wire racks to cool.  Makes 26 cookies.
