Corrie’s One Cup Cookies

Just like my brownies….I’ve been perfecting this recipe over time and think I’ve got it just right.

Corrie’s One Cup Cookies
1 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar (caster or brown)
1 cup oats (rolled or quick)
1 cup choc chips/chunks and pecans (I had 3/4 cup chocolate and 1/4 cup chopped pecans)
125g melted butter

Combine all ingredients and roll into small balls, flatten on tray and bake in 190 degree oven for 15-20 minutes (mine take about 18 minutes). Cool on tray for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack. These won’t last long as they are so deliciously sweet, buttery and crispy!

Occasionally my mixture is a teensy bit dry so I add 1-2Tbsp water. If you’re watching your waistline swap the butter for low fat margerine, use 3/4 cup sugar and use big fat juicy raisins instead of chocolate and pecans.

And inspired by this lady’s new profile picture I thought it was time I stopped putting a picture of a knitted doll as my profile picture…since I’m obviously not one. Sooooooooo, here I am a la saturday morning…and I can’t say ‘oh please excuse me but I have no makeup on’ as I very rarely wear it but I am noticing the wrinkles creeping up on me without my permission.

oh yeah and I think I’m the last blogger to make it on twitter but I’m there as retromummy now! only one real life friend is but every other crafty person seems to have been on there for ages!!!!!


  1. i’m so making those!

    You’re not coming up on my twitter searches….

  2. Thanks Corrie for that recipe, I was looking for one just like it – I have that many boxes of oats in my pantry!

    I think you look lovely – it’s great to see a photo of you.

    And by the way, I am not on Twitter – maybe I should go and check it out!

  3. What a beautiful photo! What beautiful cookies!

  4. no, you are not the last blogger to twitter! no twittering (or tweeting??) for me! not gonna happen!!! hehe! love the new profile pic!

  5. I think your photo looks great. I wouldnt worry about no makeup, and I am sure those are just tired lines, not wrinkles. I better check out twitter and see what the fuss is all about.

  6. Not the last Corrie, I’m not on Twitter.

  7. I love how everything is One Cup. They looks yummy.

  8. Thanks for this, i will be making!! x

    You are not the last blogger to get into twitter. I havent’ quite got my head around it yet either!

  10. Nice photo – good luck with the Twittering (it’s all a mystery to me at the moment….) and yum to the cookies – must make some of those.

  11. No twitter for me!!!!

  15. Thanks for the recipe Corrie! Made some yesterday afternoon YUMMY! They were a hit with all the family and already I have another batch ordered for Easter Monday family gathering :)

  16. Thanks for the recipe. I tried it out yesterday with sultanas. Overall they were pretty good (but I think I may have had the oven too hot). I think I’ll go choc chip next time.

  17. My husband made these tonight for school morning teas – he used a 250g block of Cadburys and chopped it up so small u can barely taste it – but the biscuits are yum – said a prayer for you and your Mum tonight
