Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This afternoon I made the cream cheese stuffed oatmeal cookies, AGAIN, for the third time in a week!  I wasn’t in the mood to stuff them, so I decided to see how they fared without the filling.  I thought about just doing oatmeal, then I thought oatmeal and coconut, but in the end I decided to use Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips.

 These milk chocolate chips are by far my favorite in an oatmeal cookie.  They’re bigger than normal chips and are beyond delicious.  I eat them like Hershey’s Kisses sometimes.  No unwrapping required!  Anything that gets me to the chocolate quicker is a good thing.


Anyway, the last batch is in the oven as I type this post.  I had one that was the perfect temperature and it was good.  Next time I might add coconut and I will have to try it with raisins sometime.  Ben’s favorite is oatmeal raisin and so I’m always trying to improve on the Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie from Quaker.  I like the texture of this oatmeal cookie.  Not too soft, not too sweet, just right.  I think it will be a good base for an oatmeal raisin cookie.  I’ll fill you in once I go for batch number four of these cookies.
