Chocolate Chip Cookies With Oats and Toffee Bits

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Gidget265

Got this out of the Chicago Tribune and wanted to save the recipe electronically... A key to making superior cookies - is to make the dough a day ahead and let it sit in the fridge so the flavors meld -- fuller flavor with notes of toffee and caramel (so says the article)

Overall, not too bad of a recipe, but our family thought the ratio of "stuff" to "dough" was out of proportion. If I made these again, I would either double the dough, or cut the stuff in half. Otherwise, it is pretty tasty. After the cookies cooled, we sealed them in a Tupperware container and they were nice and chewy later! Thank you Gidget265!
