This recipe won the $10,000 Grand Prize in the 10th annual Quaker Oats competition. These cookies are indulgent, comfy and chewy-crisp. Including the coffee keeps them from being overly sweet but leave it out if you like. Kids have fun forming these by hand.

They came out very thick and dry. It might have been the wholesome oats I used. They did not taste too good fresh of the oven. Maybe they might tastes better in the morning.

These cookies were great! Mine didn't really flatten out, so they were pretty interesting looking. They got great reviews at work!
