My only suggestion for this recipe is DOUBLE IT; they won’t last! These cookies are wonderful, gooey and chewy as well as subtly spiced.

Delicious and oh, so many options. I would highly recommend making these, they have a little crispy edge but are still perfectly chewy like a good oatmeal cookie shoud be–perfection.
