Mare Wojcik’s Famous Cookies

Hi everyone!

Today’s post introduces us to a cookie that can be a a treat for a school lunch that isn’t packed with high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oil.

Thanks, Paul!

Dear Alma,

This is my mom’s cookie recipe from the 70’s – some people think they are dry but I love them.
They were a great afternoon snack and she would bring them to our hockey games and feed them to the whole team – in more recent years she would feed them to her granddaughters hockey team – it was such a great feeling when I would bring her to her granddaughters games and everybody would say “hey Grammy, I hope you brought your cookies”

It is a simple recipe and this recipe should yield you 30 cookies.


             Mare Wojcik’s Famous Cookies

3/4 to 1 cup of sugar in the raw depending on sweet you like them – I think the oatmeal is sweet enough so I use only 3/4 of a cup
1 1/2 sticks of sweet butter at room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in 1/4 cup of water
1 cup of flour
3 cups of rolled oats
12 ounces of semi sweet chocolate chips
12 ounces of pecan halvesPre heat oven to 350 degrees
Mix the sugar and butter together with a hand beater
Continue beating and add in the egg, vanilla, water baking soda mixture.
Then add in flour.
Next beat in the oats – this will be a very thick batter.
Once well mixed add chocolate chips and pecan halves.Use a tablespoon to scoop a heaping tablespoon onto a cookie sheet.
Wet the back of a spoon and flatten out the top of the cookie a bit  – these cookies are rather thick  and will not flatten during baking.
You should have between 26 – 30 cookies.
Bake for 9 minutes – rotate cookie sheets front to back and top shelf to bottom shelf and bake another 9 minutes
When cookies are golden brown remove from oven.
Cool cookies on a baking rack and enjoy!My mom would make a so called “healthier” low carb version for when I would go on the South Beach diet. She would use whole wheat flour, steel cut oats, organic dark chocolate chips and a natural sugar alternative from whole foods called “just like sugar”.
Bake these cookies in good health and enjoy them.
