Recipe Thursday #15: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made Oatmeal Cookies for the very first time a few weeks ago. This apparently was shocking to my friends - they could not believe I had never made them before. But see, people always put raisins in them and I cannot eat raisins. It's not like I'm allergic or anything, they just creep me out. Yes, I know I am weird. I think that's already clearly established here. Any-who, here's the recipe I used. They were so good I want to make them again soon!
