Crispy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies
These cookies are especially nice to bake during the holidays because the recipe makes so many cookies. Bake these for your Christmas cookie exchange party or to give as gifts. Check out the cute diy gifting idea I have for you at the bottom.
I’ve made these cookies several times and have a couple of notes to add. The recipe calls for 3 cups of oats, but I’ve also made them with 2 cups after realizing I didn’t have enough on hand. They turned out just fine! Also, the yield says 4 dozen cookies but I think my last count was in the 60’s so….depends how large you make them.
Give these homemade cookies out for hostess gifts, or gifts for neighbors, teachers, or friends.

- For the gift container, use the mini size canisters that nuts or Pringles chips come in. Empty it out and wipe down the inside with a damp cloth. Wrap the outside with scrapbook paper or wrapping paper, print out a circle gift tag to apply to the lid, and tie with pretty ribbon. Bake your cookies small enough to fit inside the container and stack them up.
