The oatmeal makes all the difference. These are the VERY BEST! They vanish quickly.

Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! We made this recipe with many modifications and it was still delicious! We did all butter, no shortening, decreased white sugar to 1/4 cup, used a combo of whole wheat and regular flour, added vanilla, chocolate chips and pecans. Beautiful cookies and most delicious. Also, very easy recipe. We'll be making this one often!
