Recipe by Stephanie V

Family favorite - the dough is as good as the cookie!

Top Review by Sharon the Rocket

I had to give this 3 stars because they didn't quite turn out as good as I expected. Part of it could be the ovens but overall, following the recipe exactly didn't provide a lot a flavor plus, according to hubby, I should have used raisins NOT chocolate chips with oatmeal. These were actually really good when broken up and put into a vanilla shake (tasted like a Dairy Queen Blizzard!) Made for PAC '10
