(Really Good) Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, so I get kind of fixated on one theme citrus, chocolate, pasta. This week it's oatmeal cookies. I just want to share one, okay maybe two more. You can decide which one you like best. I've been making this recipe for over 12 years. It was actually one of those in the mail freebies , you know those little cards they send to entice you to get the whole collection, and of course the original title is Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies. So of course, I made them. I usually go for big, thick, soft cookies but these are more on the thin, crispy side but very buttery tasting with the chewiness from the oatmeal and the cinnamon, oh, it's what makes the cookie in my opinion. And although they might not be the prettiest cookie, once people taste them they won't care.
