Personal Notes:
I love chocolate chip cookies, and I've tried quite a few recipes. This is one of my favorites. They're excellent, huge, thick, crisp outside and chewy inside cookies. I leave out the nuts and use regular chocolate chips, as that's what I usually have on-hand. Also, these aren't really "oaty," in fact, you can barely tell the oats are there. Fabulous cookies on their own but also my go-to cookie for serving with ice cream. Great cookie.
