The best cookie around… Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

Since I am in a baking mood lately I figured I’ll introduce you all to my favorite cookie: oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  I absolutely love baking these scrumptious treats for friends, family, and co-workers especially around the holidays.  Below is the recipe I use when baking the cookies and it makes about three dozen cookies. Enjoy!
