whole wide world

 ever seen that movie "stranger than fiction"? did you get a sudden urge to get a small bakery, a half-sleeve tattoo and bake chocolat chip cookies everyday? me too... so i made cookies. the rest will have to wait.
 the recipe is originally from a swedish book called "tillfällen att njuta en smula" (terese wikström) which i can recommend to all swedes. really beautiful book. anyway, bake this to either the soundtrack of aforementioned film or edith piaf. works either. i added lemon-zest and i think some coarsely chopped almonds would not have been bad..

chocolate chip cookies
makes 12-30 depending on size

2 eggs
200 g butter/margarine
3 dl flour
6 dl rolled oats
4 dl brown sugar
4 tbsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp baking soda 
200 g dark chocolate
pinch of salt
the zest of half a lemon

mix all the dry ingredients together. melt the butter and add that and the eggs and stir into a batter. roll little (or big) balls and place on a baking parchment, not to close since they float out. bake for about 8-15 minutes depending on size. my middle-sized ones took about 13 so if they don't look done leave them for a minute or so.. when they've floated out and set on the surface they're done. let the cookies cool on the baking sheet before moving them onto a rack to cool completely.
