I've always loved Oatmeal Cookies. Oatmeal cookies, honestly, have to be my most all time favorite cookies there is. However, I'm really picky about my Oatmeal cookies. As I am with all my cookies. I like mine to be nice and chewy. Never can they be hard nor can they be fall apart soft.
These cookies are my ideal Oatmeal Cookie. Not only do they have everything that you could really ask for in them, they come out nice and chewy and so delicious that it'll kick you in the butt for just how delicious these cookies are!
If your a huge Oatmeal Cookie fan like I, then you will instantly fall in love with these cookies! I know I did. And I'm having to hide myself some so that I have cookies for myself for when I'm in a fix for one. Being the fact that these cookies are quickly disappearing!
