Nicole’s Favorite Oatmeal Cookies

Best Oatmeal Cookies

I was never a big fan of oatmeal cookies,.. until I had these. My friend Nicole’s grandmother makes them, and they are the BEST. I had her send me the recipe, so I could add it to my Cookie Project. “Nicole’s Favorite Oatmeal Cookies” is what her grandmother titled them. I loved it and felt it was only appropriate to keep it (note: I just found out that this is a Martha Stewart recipe which explains why they are so amazing).

I implore you to try these. The toffee makes them crunchy and there is a kind of sweet & sour thing going on with the cherries & chocolate. I didn’t try to change this recipe to yield a smaller batch like I usually do, because I didn’t want to mess with perfection.

I think these just might have to be the third cookie I use for my ice cream sandwiches at my wedding… We shall see.
