Margie’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just in time for back-to-school and back-to-bake sale season, have we got a cookie recipe for you!

“When remodeling my kitchen a few years back, I actually designed the whole project around my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe,” said Margie Fendley of Summerville, S.C.

That’s what Margie told us, but we have to admit we were a bit skeptical. Re-doing the whole kitchen over one recipe? How did that work exactly?

“Mixer, ingredients, spices, baking pans, cooling racks and utensils were all within arm’s reach and were between the sink and oven,” Marie said. “I found that the arrangement served me well for many other recipes also.”

The aroma filling Alicia’s kitchen as she tested and photographed Margie’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies was topped only by their flavor.

These really ARE special, Alicia reports. And lots of readers of our newspaper column made the cookies after we published the recipe. They loved them also.

Try them and let us know what YOU think!

Ken, I'm so happy you enjoyed the recipe! Craisins would be good as well.

I hear you, Beverly. This is my "go to" recipe when I have new neighbors or a sick friend. It makes enough to give away and have some at home. It is definitely a temptation to eat too many myself.

I am having a small get together in New York today with my girlfriends. I was looking for the perfect recipe I thought i had it narrowed down to banana chocolate chip bread, but I think I will give this one a shot! I'm tempted to eat my monitor right now... seriously.

LOL! It is true that we eat with our eyes. This is a great photo.

OK, I have a confession, I avoid looking at the photos of these amazing cookies because it makes me want to bake repeated batches. But I'm giving in today and I'm going to try some of the other suggestions from you all. If anyone else has experimented, let me know. I'm all for another excuse to whip these up! Oh what I wont do for "research!"

I think that is the most amazing cookie photo I have ever seen! I have to agree with Patricia, I was also actually tempted to eat my computer monitor...
