This is a "Superb" Oatmeal cookie recipe. They are a melt in your mouth cookie. Very good ! Gave my oldest 'truck-driver' son some to take on a run and now the rest of the truckers at his workplace want me to make more. I would say that is a mighty good compliment for any recipe : ) grammajune
Chewy and delicious, with just the right blend of spices. Better than my mom's!!!!
