Because your cookie jar should never be empty…Triple Chip Oatmeal Cookies are just what you need when that cookie craving hits!
Happy Friday! Is anyone else looking forward to this weather warming up? Forecast for next week has highs at 48°, that may not seem like much to some of you, but we’ve got to start somewhere. Spring, here we come 🙂 Since you may still be stuck inside due to cold temps this weekend, may I suggest making a batch of cookies? Triple Chip Oatmeal Cookies perhaps?
This is a really terrific cookie. Loaded with three kinds of chocolate chips and oatmeal, they have a nice texture and are amazing when eaten warm. So, let’s talk about cookie dough…to chill or not to chill? It is an obviously important step in a lot of cookie recipes. This recipe did not include that step. But the second time I made them, I put them in the freezer for a bit after shaping them. I liked the results after baking, they didn’t spread quite as much. But if you like a crispier cookie, then by all means go straight from mixing bowl to oven. If you like your cookies a tad chewier, I recommend a short stint in the freezer. Either way, these cookies are a must for the ol’ recipe binder and the cookie jar 🙂
