These were another winner from the "Search For The Ultimate Oatmeal Cookie" Recipe Contest by Quaker, and I found this recipe online. I made them last night, along with the other oatmeal cookies I've posted, and loved them! They're no bake and use Nutella (or another similar spread; I used Nutella), which I love! The recipe was formulated by Patricia Garvin. (Cooking time is really cooling time)
