  3. Hi ,
    Your kids are super cute….they both are like their cool moms 🙂
    Anuja’s son adds a pinch of spice to your show like her mom and Hetal’s daughter adds sweetness to show.Lucky moms…Good work…
    You kids rock…keep going.

  4. Freezing process and baking: I had made a log of the remaining cookie dough and wrapped it with parchment paper twice and put it in a ziploc bag tightly sealed. Night before baking, I took the cookie dough bag out of the freezer and put it in the fridge for defrosting. I took it out an hour before I wanted to bake because it was still very hard and I wanted to add more sugar to it because it wasn’t sweet enough for us.

    I added about a 1/4 cup of sugar and mixed well. Put the scoops of cookie dough on cookie tray and baked according to the direction and the cookies were done in 12-13 mins. They were fabulous, warm and gooey.

  5. I made these cookies months ago and been wanting to comment on them. I followed the recipe exactly and they were not as sweet as Chocolate Chip Cookies are suppose to be. I didn’t see a point in adding quick oats; in fact, they got in the way of the taste so I will definitely leave them out next time. They did come out soft from inside and crispy on outside but we didn’t care for the taste. We kept feeling like it was missing something besides more brown sugar or regular sugar.

    May I ask why you guys add quick oats? I felt it really got in the way!

    One thing I did differently was add sea salt on top of some of the cookies before baking and it does provide a unique salty and sweet taste to it.

    I froze half of the cookie batch and plan on making it this weekend with addition sugar and brown sugar and see if the cookies taste better. Will let you know how things went after defrosting the dough and with more sugar.

    1. Hi Pinal,

      Sorry you didn’t like the cookies…guess its a personal taste issue. We and our kids absolutely LOVE these! We purposely used less sugar because it has so much chocolate already and the oats add texture and some health factor by replacing some of the white flour. As the recipe has so much butter, we would not call these cookies “healthy” but compared to store bought ones, they are healthier.

      1. Thanks for your quick response. I guess it is a personal taste thing. I had compared the recipe on the back of the chocolate chips bag and most of it is the same including the butter. You guys just added less sugar and added oats and lemon juice.

        I will let you know the outcome of freezing the dough and baking. It will help your loyal viewers including me. 🙂

  6. hallo lovely lady’s,

    whenever i buy cookies, i can’t stop eating till the whole package is empty and still i’m not satisfied! With these cookies , lady’s after one cookie, i feel satisfied and full, ooo, the chocolate, the smell, the crunch but soft inside!!! I lof it and i dont eat as much so it’s good for my health and no guilty feelings after,YES!!

    Is it ok to make a bath and freeze it?

  7. Hi Hetal & Anuja:

    Me and my two daughters ( 7 years , 12 years old) make use of your web site a lot. They just love it. On the weekends my elder one visits your web site at least once. And she makes items using your recipes.

    You both are doing a great job! You are giving a wonderful service to the community, cultivating the liking towards cooking in the upcoming generation. Keep it up.

    Thank you.

  8. Hi, I really loved the video as i think it’s simple and easy to follow. May i know if these are the crunchy or soft and chewy sort of cookies?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Mandy,

      If you are careful with the baking (keeping a close eye towards the end and not overbaking), the outer layer is a bit crunchy but the inside is moist and chewy.

  9. Hi Hetal and Anuja

    Ur kids are very cute… Nice video..Today i tried choco chip walnut cookie.. I made it using cookie sheet tray with wax paper…But more smoke came..Wat is the reason behind it.? I used conventional oven for 375 F for 12 mins…Is wax paper the reason?? I used it again one more time… I made cookie using pizza pan…and it flattens…Its 1st time for me to make it… I tried one more time using cookie sheet with greased butter and placed cookies. It baked less than 8 mins.. it came out good but still it is soft… After that cooled..Outer crust its crispy and inner its soft.. Plz hel pme.. I ll b v highly grateful in thanking u for telling me how to do again step by step for my issues..

    1. Hi Archana,

      The mistake was the wax paper. You have to use parchment paper. Wax paper can be used for baking if you line the bottom of a pan and then cover it completely with something like cake batter. If wax paper is exposed in the oven, the wax will start to melt and smoke. At 375 degrees Fahrenheit, the cookies need to bake for 13-14 minutes if you made them the size we showed. If you made the cookies smaller, the baking time would be less. The cookies are supposed to be a little firm on the outside and nice and soft on the inside.

      1. Hi hetal

        Thank u v much for my issues..Will make it again once more .. I packed it and gave to my hubby s friends.They are tired of appreciating abt those cookies 🙂 I made smaller cookie size into greased butter cookie sheet and baked it for about 6 to 8 mins at 350 F… its still soft inside..i need it to be crunchy …If i want to make cookie size smaller then please tell me how many mins to bake and which temperature!!Also i dont have icecream scoop sponn in which ur kids used it..Should i buy? I shall be v thankful to u 🙂 Can u tell me name of the brand and shop name to get Hand mixer ?Am staying in Dallas.Want to buy the same as u use..

  12. Hi guys …
    I tried out this recipe & they turned out bitter ….
    i added the same quantity as mentioned , but they came out bitter !! any idea why it happened…

    1. Hi MCathy,

      Sometimes, you can get a bitter taste if the flour is not fresh. Also, walnuts become rancid over time and can cause bitterness.

  13. Hi Hetal/ Anuja

    Am regularly watching ur shows, really fantastic. Have tried some of your receipes it came out really well. Both of ur childrens hosted the show very nice. now only i watched the show, tomorrow am going to try these. Thank u for ur receipes, post more receipes and congrats for ur serives

  15. Hi, i tried it out and came out really good. we loved it!! thanks for the awesome recepie. both the kids have put in great effort. its good that you are enocouraging kids to get involved in cooking. keep up the good work guys 🙂

  16. Great recipe, great presentation by kids. Hats off to them and to their moms too..:)
    People like Abby are always around, who themselves are incompetent and can do nothing but get into criticizing otheres who are best.
    Keep up the good work gals!

    1. Hi Sreeja,

      Honestly, we have not tried using wheat flour in this recipe. It will probably work but the texture and taste may be slightly different. Maybe you can try a half batch to experiment.

  17. This child is a Natural performer, he is not a robot.Children should express themselves just as they feel as long as they do not offend anyone..
    Children .. You are a star in making.

  18. I dont think we need to put up with your ineptitude comments regarding the child/ children of the presenter of this site, you may think that you have arrived at a point of trouble making..well I got something else to say ” GROW UP”

    1. OMG! How did you guess? Stay tuned to see future episodes starring our mothers-in-law, followed by our fathers-in-law, our family dog and cat, and we’ll throw in our neighbor’s fish for free. LOL!

      1. Nice Presentation by kids. Could you please show some nut free cookie, muffin recipes for school kids.

  19. Hey Arjun,Sejal ,
    we did watch the cookie recipe……we didnot try it, but u both did an awesome show….
    hope to see more…good luck.

  20. Hello
    I substitute the egg with water and flax seed powder.
    what i observed is they are equally good at taste but they are
    bit hard (far better then store brought cookies).
    Thank you

    1. Hi YG,

      Thank you so much for providing feedback for so many people interested in making these cookies eggless…much appreciated! 🙂

  21. my 11year old daughter loves all your recipes, Every now and then she tries something. The thing that she admires most is that your recipes are quick. Tiramasu was her favorite. Thank you for instilling love of cooking in her. I really appreciate it .

    1. You are so very welcome Jamal! Its really nice to see young people taking an interest in cooking…something they can take with them all throughout their lives.
