I really got into baking in college- go figure. I think maybe it was a combination of a need for comfort food and also because I loved sharing with people. It’s a great feeling to see the look on a roommate’s face when they’re frustrated from studying for a test, and you bring up a plate of warm cookies. I originally made this recipe without the oatmeal- for that recipe you’ll see the second set of ingredients. The process is exactly the same except with slightly different amounts of ingredients, and of course, the original doesn’t use oatmeal.
