"Incredible cookies!! They're just everything in one - peanut butter, oats, chocolate.... MMMM. I don't add as much chips because I like them better, you can taste the dough more :) I only add 4 kinds of chips, 2/3 cups each."

"This recipe is one of our family favorites! This freezes well- just place wax paper on a cookie sheet and place your rounded balls close, but not touching, onto the sheet; place in freezer. Once frozen, stick in a freezer bag and you have fresh cookies anytime you want! To bake- place cookies on cookie sheet and into the oven, THEN pre-heat the oven (yes, with the cookies inside!). Once the oven preheats set the timer for about 8-10 mins. and bake as usual!"

"FANTASTIC cookies! I love that they taste different with every bite you take due to the different chips in them. What an awesome cookie. All my co workers who tried them had an argument of what was in them and I told them they were all right and they were stunned. But they LOVED them as well! Definitely a keeper! Thank you!"
