My New Favorite Cookie!

I have so many perks at work, and one of them is that there is always some kind of "goody" in the coffee/break room.  It's no wonder why I NEED to use the stationary bike at home!

One day, the secretary, Victoria, brought these awesome, chocolate chip cookies that had oatmeal and chopped nuts in them. In my opinion, they totally blew away the Nestle Toll House cookies that I normally make! I don't even want to admit how many I ate because every time I "had" to walk past the room, I took one!

Well, she could tell that I really, really liked them, so she gave me the recipe!!

I was so worried that it wasn't going to come out the same, but as soon as I opened the oven door, I almost jumped up for joy! Plus, these were the easiest cookies to make, and it made 4 dozen!!

I'm going to make sure I copy this for backup!

All this equals love. Or extra calories!

This was the first step! Easy peezy!

And then the second. It almost seems like it was too dry, but it's supposed to be that way.

Yummy goodness!

And 15 minutes later...voila! Can you see how they poof up?

Who's got milk?

I brought these to church the next day, and I'm glad that I brought home an empty platter!
