Wow, these are so good! Glad I only made a half batch because they're very addicting! They're a chewy cookie with just a bit of crisp on the edges and we both love them! I didn't have quick cooking oats, so used the 5 minute and put them in the food processor to blend just a bit so it wasn't so chunky before adding to the dough. Thanks for posting the recipe Marlene! :)
