No kids in the house for a few days. Time to bake some grown-up cookies. I made the dough early this morning and baked half a batch this afternoon, then took this picture before the chocolate had time to cool.
These are Chunky Lolas. A customer favorite at Joanne Chang's Flour Bakery in Boston. They have everything that grownups like and kids hate; oatmeal, coconut, pecans and bittersweet chocolate.
I used the recipe in her wonderful book, Flour: A baker's collection of Spectacular Recipes.
Here is a link to Blue Eyed Baker's version of the recipe.http://www.blueeyedbakers.com/home/2012/1/26/chunky-lola-cookies.html
