Oatmeal Cookies to Die For!

I found this recipe when my daughter first started having issues with dairy. I never imagined that it would be such a hit! And talk about a nice ego boost when you are specifically asked to bring this item to EVERY get together and they are the first thing to go!

1 cup margarine or butter, softened**
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups oats, uncooked

1. Preheat oven 350.
2. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until creamy
3. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well
4. Add combined flour, baking soda, cocoa, and salt; mix well
5. Stir in oats. Drop onto ungreased baking sheet
6. Bake 8-10 mins (I do 9 mins)

**I use crisco instead of butter or margarine.

    Those sound good! Do they taste at all like chocolate? (That would be my idea of pure bliss)

  2. They have a hint of chocolate. Not over powering or anything. They are just really really good.

  3. these sound delicious! Im making them this weekend!

  4. Whoever makes them, has to send some to me =) j/k!!! I love these cookies Leah. So glad you’re bringing them Friday!

  5. They sound YUMMY!!!!!

  6. Another thing, and I am sure others do this with cookies that they bake, I put them in freezer bags and freeze them. So when I want one, I take it out, put it on a paper towel, and microwave it fro about 15-20 seconds. They taste like they just came out of the oven!!
