Fantastic! I totally forgot to add the shortening and they still turned out soo tastey. My whole family loved them. Thanks for the post! I will keep this recipe for sure!
These cookies are great - simultaneously crispy and chewy. The oatmeal gives them flavor, nutrition and texture and makes them sturdy enough for the kids to carry then in their school lunches. They are also gooey enough to please a house full of chocolate lovers. I will be putting some dough in the freezer to see how they turn out when frozen - and will report back. Thanks asmilliken :)
