I am always in the kitchen creating new recipes. Tasty dinners for my family, over the top desserts, fun snack foods, outrageous breakfasts (not before 9 am though…)
But over the years I have made a few recipes over and over and over again. I like to think I have perfected them. Since I was about 12 years old I was known for making the BEST brownies. That recipe came from a mistake… proof that you learn from your mistakes, they tasted better than the original! My recipe has changed over the years and I honestly think it couldn’t get any better! Same goes for my chocolate chip cookies. I have tinkered with my recipe for years and now I have it exactly the way I want it. Slightly crisp on the edges. Soft and chewy gooey on the inside. And the dough is so buttery delicious and loaded with chips!
This recipe is a slight variation of my usual recipe. This one has oats! It is not an oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips, it’s a chocolate chip cookie with oatmeal. Got it? The oatmeal is complementary, not the star of the show.
It’s an all American classic. Like Mickey Mouse
I couldn’t help myself here. I just made a batch of fudge frosting and just had to smear it on a cookie. You should do that too, its delish!
