In Light Of Swiss National Day -- Old Jones, #3

My mind makes interesting connections. Here's part of an e-mail that I recently received.
All Swiss Products on Sale in August
In honor of Swiss National Day, August 1, all of our Swiss products will be on sale, all month-long. Take 20% off all Lindt bars, all Toblerone bars, all Hero preserves, all Hero potato products and all Swiss-made cheeses. In addition, ALL OTHER CHEESES will be 10% off, throughout the month of August.
As soon as I saw Lindt, it reminded me of cookies that I used to make.

So, in light of Swiss National Day, I present the ingredients required for Not Neiman Marcus's Chocolate Chip Cookies, an old jones:

2 cs old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cs all-purpose white flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c (2 sticks)unsalted butter, slightly softened
3/4 c packed light brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
2 Tblspns light corn syrup
2 large eggs
2 tsps vanilla extract
2 cs semisweet cho. morsels
1 3 1/2 to 4 oz bar top quality milk chocolate coarsely grated or finely chopped
1 c (4 ozs) chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
For the rest of the recipe, check out Nancy Baggett's The All-American Cookie Book.
