"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

1 c butter, at room temperature
1/2 c water
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c granulated sugar
1 c unsifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
3 c uncooked oats
1 12 oz. bag Ghiradelli semisweet chocolate chips
1 c walnuts, chopped

In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy and lightened in color (about 4 minutes)

Add vanilla and egg. Mix on low speed until well incorporated.

Sift flour with baking soda, salt and spices. Add to creamed mixture just until combined. Stir in oats and fold in chocolate chips and walnuts. Refrigerate until firm

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Roll into golfball sized balls and flatten on greased cookie sheet or parchment paper so final cookie size is approximately 5-6 inches across. Place in oven and check after 8-9 minutes. Watch carefully and take them out when they are browned to your satisfaction. They should be moist and chewy. Baking them longer will darken them and dry them out.

I have stayed in lots of hotels during my life as an educational support representative, then as a consultant for IBM. Doubletree hotel gives you a warm cookie when you check in and they make them available for purchase by the tin. I bought a tin and came up with this recipe based on the ingredients listed on the can. They're pretty close to the originals...and good in any case.
