I used Old Fashioned Oats, as opposed to the quick cook variety, although I think either would be fine. Unsalted butter is generally all I keep on hand, so that is what I used. I happened to have a bag of Ghiradelli Semi Sweet Chocolate chips, so they went into the mix too. The batter was a bit drier then most cookie batters, but perhaps that was due to the 3 choices of light brown sugar that I had on hand; rock hard, sort of hard and just a bit dry. I used the least hard of the three, but I did pick up a bag of nice, fresh light brown sugar from the grocery store on my next visit.
Now for the really important part .... the reviews from the family. They all gave them a resounding 5 thumbs up (no they don't each have 5 thumbs, instead all five of us gave them one thumb up).
So dig out that mixer and get baking! Thanks for stopping into the Green House on the Hill today.
