No, this recipe didn't win a Gold Medal (yet) it came from the back of a bag of Gold Medal Flour. I often make recipes on the back of packages--they are usually yummy. I just assume products would only want the best recipes on their packages.
Do I really need another oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe? Yes, of course I do! I liked this recipe because it is easy, perfect for the beginner. No fussy instructions; just a few ingredients combine to make a delicious cookie. Is it good? My granddaughters gave them thumbs up. I will make them again when I need a quick, tasty cookie. Enjoy.
