I love making cookies. I love cookbooks even more. I think my favorite cookbooks are church cookbooks. The ones where everyone sends in their favorite recipe.
The other day I wanted oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I went to my MOPS cookbook that is probably 10 years old. I love this cookbook because it has recipes from my favorite people.
These cookies are amazing because they are soft and yummy with a little crunch.
