Our local Chick-fil-A provided a special cookie treat for each participant of this morning's National Day of Prayer breakfast. I didn't notice the seal on the package until I pulled it from my purse late this afternoon for a tasty snack. I'm still smiling about the label and thought I would share one of my family's favorite cookie recipes in case you want to let your cookie take a dive in a cold glass of milk!
Chocolate Chip-Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/4 cups softened butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes in a 375 degree F. oven for a chewy cookie and 10 to 11 minutes for a crisp cookie. Let cool 1 minute on the cookie sheet, and then remove to a wire rack. Makes 4 1/2 dozen.
