Indulge in these yummy cookies!
I happened upon the best cookie recipe this week! Why are cookies so good? Is it the chocolate chips? Is it the gooey soft middles? Is it the crunchy brown edges? I think it is the combination of all of these elements. Oatmeal chocolate chip are my favorite and plain oatmeal are a close second. I got both with this one recipe. Simply leave out the chocolate chips for a chewy wonderful oatmeal cookie. Of course I will give you the recipe.....I'm trying to count how many of them I ate this week. I shared them at the office and at home and I always ate just one more! Oh well, who cares! ENJOY!!!!!
