Chocolate Oatmeal Nut Cookies

This is yet another recipe from that old Digital Equipment Corp cookbook. It was simply titled "Chocolate Chip Cookies".
These are not simply chocolate chip! I feel the name should be reflective of what you are actually I changed it to Chocolate Oatmeal Nut cookies.
(I used pecans, but feel free to use whatever chopped nut you favor)

This is a pretty dry dough, I was uncertain that I had followed the recipe properly, but it is what it is I guess.
Also, the top of the cookies do not get brown. I used hubby as a "checker" to see if it was actually cooked on the inside.
:::whew::: happy to say it was.

So, these cookies try to be tricky tricky and fool you...but in the end, they are yummy and worth it!

1 Cup butter (softened)
1 Cup brown sugar
1 Tsp vanilla
2 ½ Cup oatmeal
1 Tsp baking powder
4 oz Hershey bar (finely grated)
1 Cup sugar
2 Eggs
2 Cups flour
½ Tsp salt
1 Tsp baking soda
12 oz chocolate chips
1 ½ Cups chopped nuts

2. Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla
3. Add flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda
4. Mix well
5. Mix in the chocolate chips, grated chocolate, and chopped nuts
6. Drop teaspoonfulls onto baking pan
7. Bake 6-9 minutes
