This episode of America’s Test Kitchen opens with hosts Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison talking about oatmeal cookies (and how they’re usually not all that great). “When most people make oatmeal cookies, they just use the recipe on the back of the cannister,” says Bridget. “That’s right, because if anyone should know how to make a great oatmeal cookie, it’s the folks who make the oats,” replies Julia. Unfortunately, both agree, most oatmeal cookie recipes yield cookies that are more cakey than chewy. So Julia and Bridget set out to change all that. Later in the episode, Adam Ried reviews prep bowls, our gadget expert Lisa McManus explains what makes for a good pie carrier, and Elle Simone makes a killer recipe for pecan bars.
