If you're joining us here today from Good Things Utah or Instagram, WELCOME!!!
I've dusted off the old blog for this little ditty's grand debut, 
and will be around here a little bit more from now. If you're here from Instagram or caught the Live Show on ABC, you'll know a little bit about how this recipe came to be, BUT, if you're new and have stumbled upon us, here is a little story about how "The Famous Ones" came to be...

You see, once upon a time long long ago, in a far away galaxy called Rexburg, Idaho, I was a young college student who loved to eat cookie DOUGH for dinner. Calories are calories right??? Noooooooo. My 20’s were rough in this department, but that’s a story for another day. So anyway, I spent every Sunday FOR TWO YEARS making my 6 roommates (Becky, Melissa, Heather, Rachael, Jessi, and Stephen Yoshida) cookies to create the MOST PERFECT AND AMAZING COOKIE TO HAVE EVER LIVED. I’ve kept this recipe a locked down SECRET until now. Today, on Good Things Utah, I finally let my secret ingredients out of the vault for all of you. You can watch the LIVE show in my Instagram stories {emiemiemi82} for the next 24 hours! BUTTERFLIES in my stomach about sharing this with you. This is the recipe where my cooking began! DRUM ROLLS PLEASE...

“The Famous Ones”


3/4c sugar
3/4c Brown sugar
2 eggs 
1 tbls vanilla 
2 sticks butter, partially melted
1tsp salt
1tsp baking soda
2 1/4c flour 
1c quick oats, blended
1 Handful regular quick oats (NOT blended)
1/2 bag Reese’s PB Chips
1/2 bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/4 bag white chocolate chips 
**1/2tsp cinnamon optional 


Preheat oven to 350*

1. Cream all wet ingredients together with everything except for the flour. Once well mixed, add the flour. 

2. Blend 1 cup Quick Oats in an electric nut chopper (or regular blender), add to mixture. Mix well. Throw in a handful or so of regular NOT blended Quick Oats and mix well. These two things are the secret ingredient! 

3. Add three different chocolate chips in. Mix well. 

4. Roll into golf ball sized balls. They should be perfectly round. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350* for 12-13 minutes (every oven is different—the goal is to have golden brown bottoms of your cookies). I love mine to be ALMOST cooked. 

There you have it! They are so good they'll make you cry.
