Tip: This is our favorite oatmeal cookie recipe.
These are self trimming cookies that are moist and chewy. We make dozens and freeze them before the holidays. They can then be taken out of the freezer as needed. Fresh homemade cookies are minutes away! This recipe came from a high school classmate, Sherry!
