Cookies. Enough Said.

I baked chocolate chip oatmeal cookies last night, and they were AMAZING. I usually don't use recipes on packages, but a friend baked these a while back and I was shocked when she told me it was just the recipe off of the Quaker Oats lid. I thought I should share this find, because well, who doesn't love good food? The recipe's below, and it's also here at the Quaker Oats site.
