I found this recipe yrs ago and it is now my favorite. It is full proof, I have made every 'mistake' you can, mixing in the wrong order, under mixing, over mixing, forgetting an ingredient and they still turn out perfect! One tip, you don't have to grind the oats, just throw them in! I also love that this recipe doesn't make too many cookies, just enough for a few days (as cookies are best fresh anyway!) When I make them for parties or my coworkers they love them too!
