This recipe makes some of my favorite cookies. I found it when I was in middle school under the lid of a Quaker Oats container, however, the recipe is for oatmeal raisin cookies so I used mini chocolate chips instead and no salt. These cookies are soft and mouthwatering (I’ve been eating them non-stop since I made them yesterday!) I’ve been making these cookies for years and they never get old with me nor my friends! Perfect for a last minute party since they cool quickly and seem to please everybody.
