Wonderful Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I only made a half recipe and still got about 3 1/2 dozen. (dropped by large teaspoonsful) I teased my DGD's and told them that these were more healthy because they had oatmeal in them. The youngest who is 5 said, "Even with all the grease in them?". Kids today are sooo smart. Anyway they had lots of fun helping make cookies today. Thanks for a great recipe. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
