Grandma D's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ms. Baker

I love a good cookie - But THESE cookies have made me melt since grade school. I am careful not to make too many when I'm home alone for any length of time. There will be none for anyone else and I am left with "cookie eaters remorse" for DAYS afterwards. This is my favorite *instant gratification* treat. You won't be disappointed... Unless someone gets to them before you do. (Thanks, Grandma D!)

Just like my Mother used to make. Growing up, I thought this was the only way to make chocolate chip cookies!!! These are my all time favorite chippers!
