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.
