Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F with the rack in the upper and lower thirds. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment.
  2. Combine the oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Beat the butter, shortening, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until lightly and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing just until combined (do not overmix). Stir in the chocolate.
  4. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt.
  5. Bake, rotating the pans halfway through, until lightly brown around the edges, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Storage suggestion: Keep the cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Quick Tip

White chocolate chips
Chunks of chocolate make this cookie gooey and decadent. For a sweeter variation, substitute half or all of the dark chocolate with chopped white chocolate.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
