Oatmeal Chippers

"This recipe was given to me by a friend many years ago. It's one of my favorite cookies - they're always a big hit at Christmas. If you make them as directed you get a slightly crunchy cookie. If you want a softer chewier cookie make them a little bigger and bake for only 10 minutes. Cooking time assumes baking 2 sheets (about 32 cookies) at a time."

  1. these are the best cookies ever- everyone loves them and they are healthful also.


I'm a software engineer living in Wilmington, Delaware. I'm originally from the South (north Florida), so I was raised on good old Southern cooking. I started cooking when I was 7 and have always loved to experiment and put my own twist on the dishes I make. While traveling and living in different places I've discovered a number of wonderful cuisines - Cuban, Thai, Greek, Indonesian, Indian, et al. I have a few dishes from each cuisine that I do really well. I love to experiment with recipes. One of my favorite things to do is figure out how a dish I like is made. If I have something at a restaurant that I really like I'll experiment at home until I come up with a creditable equivalent. It's great to be a member of this community. Where else could you find recipes from people living in every corner of the world? I love it! All of the recipes I've posted here are original unless stated otherwise in the description.
