I made these cookies in a rush as I was meeting some people at the park and had to get out of the door. When I got around to having them at said park I liked them, but I can’t say I loved them you know. Then I came home and had half the dough left so I baked more cookies and when I bit into them… oh my. These were good.
It’s like a fridge is a magic machine – amazing things just happen sometimes when you let things be in there. Especially cookie doughs with butter and caramelly brown sugar. The flavors develop more, the cookies become more moist and presto we go from good to great.
These are thin, a little chewy, dark, deep and not too sweet. The oatmeal adds some texture to the cookie and the chips are purely optional – feel free to leave them out.
