These cookies would normally be a treat to share.
These chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are chewy, thick, and chocolately. This recipe comes from another one of my favorite food bloggers, Jessica at How Sweet It is. I have experiemented with countless oatmeal cookie recipes (not quite as many my best chocolate chip cookie quest), and this really is the best.
I wish you could see the melted chocolate goodness trapped inside that mound of cookie heaven. Don't you want a bite?
