I made these yesterday, my son is coming home and loves oatmeal cookies. They are wonderfully crispy, I like that. Great with ice cream! Thanks.

What is not to love about these cookies. My DH chose to surprise me by making them for me. By the time I got home there was only a few left. That should say it all. YUMM!
