The Greatest Biscuit Recipe in the World

This is my favourite biscuit ("cookie") recipe. I'm not really a food blogger, but I received this recipe as a chain mail fwd and feel obliged to pass it on.

It's quite labour-intensive so I recommend making these biscuits with a friend.

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups plain flour
2 1/2 cups blended rolled oats (blend into powder in blender)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp carb soda
250g choc chips
1 x 250g block good quality chocolate, grated
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts

Cream butter and both sugars
Add eggs and vanilla
Mix in flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and carb soda
Add choc chips, chocolate and nuts, mix well
Roll into balls, place 2 inches apart on a baking tray
Bake at 180C (375F) until golden-brown

You can use whatever type of chocolate and nuts you like - my favourite is white chocolate with peanuts; I think the original recipe said milk chocolate with walnuts. The biscuits will store for over a week in an airtight container and have been known to survive long trips via Australia Post in a padded envelope. As an added bonus, this recipe also has the proven ability to bribe nurses. Greatest biscuit recipe in the world.
