I’m known to be a big fan of cookies. One of my favorites is our chocolate chip cookies that we posted quite some time ago. Recently I was desperately in the mood for a good oatmeal cookie, and so I went on a search to find a good recipe.
I tried out a recipe I found online from a very well-known and reputable site, and the cookies came out horrible, in my opinion. They were as flat as discs, and had me feeling like I was eating all butter and no oatmeal.
I knew Deb, from Smitten Kitchen, would have a recipe for oatmeal cookies, and so I tried hers out. With a few little changes, these were the oatmeal cookies I had been dreaming of. They are perfectly crisp on the outside, and soft on the inside, and stay that way until their gone (albeit not very long).
I’m a big fan of oatmeal and dark chocolate but you can add chopped walnuts, raisins, cranberries, almonds, or whatever else makes you happy.
