In elementary and high school, I was blessed with some really fantastic friendships! I hope my 3 daughters find the kind of relationships I was blessed with some day. Anyway, one of my best friends, Lindsay had a mother equally as wonderful as this is her recipe. I remember on one occasion Lindsay and I had a huge ziploc bag of these cookies and munched almost all of them as we hung out in her room. Oh, how I would love to be able to eat 15 cookies guilt free nowadays!! ;)

So here goes...a trip down memory lane...and hopefully a scrumptious cookie for you to munch! I didn't get many pictures today. A little G snuck in and wanted to help. Taking pics while I add ingredients is one thing...but photographing the G's pouring things leads to more flour on the countertop than in the mixing bowl. :-)
Cream 2 sticks butter with 1 Cup brown sugar & 1/2 Cup white sugar
Add 2 eggs
Here is G2! She came inside after sledding with Mr. G and wanted to help! Isn't she cute?! Patiently waiting to stick her fingers in the bowl to get a taste!
Add your vanilla extract like so, then add your dry ingredients. 3C oats, 1&1/2C flour and 1 tsp. baking soda. Don't forget 1&1/2 C of chocolate chips!
Don't these already look yummy? I smushed mine down a little bit before baking
|These little stackers would be so good with a scoop of ice cream in between them, don't you think?|
|Perfect with a glass of milk!|
Best part was when G1 told me my cookies were still good even if they had "healthy" oatmeal in them! Hope you enjoy these! I think they are perfect for a cold winter day and that's exactly what today was.
Thanks Penny for sending me your recipe today! These were just what I was craving!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for my fun & functional headband holder!!! Ooo...also Mr. G starts his new job tomorrow so if we have a good day (no school tomorrow which always leads to surprises in my schedule) I really want to make him a special treat for when he comes home! Maybe 2 posts tomorrow...
