Chocolateee Good! Yes they are quick and easy. They stay nice and full don`t flatten out like some cookies do. You can`t even tell thay are made with oatmeal.
This wonderful cookie makes you rub your tummy and say, "ahhhhhhh". We loved the combination of chocolate chips, oatmeal and nuts (I used walnuts). This is a real crowd pleaser and I will make over and over again. Thank you so much, CountryLady, for sharing this.
Can't believe I haven't reviewed these yet, I've been making them for years! These are the best chocolate chips ever, and I don't say that lightly. I always make a double batch, and they get raves when I take them to someone's home.
I've made them with only brown sugar when I ran out of white sugar, but that makes them slightly too molassesy (although they're still great!) I use butter, always, and the texture and taste is perfect.
