Thin, Chewy and Buttery Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal cookies thin buttery 1

I'm feeling so good lately! I finished with radiation, had my oncology check up....everything is good! I still have to have my Herceptin treatments every three weeks, but it's totally a piece of cake compared to chemo.

Feeling well, back in my kitchen cooking and baking up a storm every week. Life is truly good and now that my taste buds have returned I can enjoy a cookie or two now and then and my most favorite cookie has always been oatmeal.

I suppose that everyone who likes oatmeal cookies has a favorite. Thick, thin, with raisins, without raisins, chocolate chips, no chips. I personally don't think there is much you can do to a cookie that won't make me like it. I mean cookies. Come on.

I found these little beauties will I was browsing around Pinterest.

Thin. Chewy. Buttery.

I'm in.

Cookie Perfection.

As always, don't over bake these or they will come out crumbly and we all know no one likes a crumbly cookie.
