Have been using this recipe for years for my cookie baskets during the holidays as well as sending to my brother when he was overseas. It is a basic,good refrigerator cookie dough that travels well.

These are wonderful cookies!! I loved them!! I have tried a few oatmeal cookie recipes trying to get this crispie effect with not so much luck but this recipe hit it!! I loved the fact that I was able to make these 4 days before christmas with all the baking I had to do, and keep the dough in the fridge until I was ready to use it. What a great added benefit. Excellent recipe!! THANKS For posting Karen
