"So easy and super yummy! I got lots of compliments when I took this to a gathering. Will be making this again because it was SOOO easy! I did mix the chips into the batter versus sprinkling them on top... I liked how they turned out that way."

"These were good and easy to put together. I needed to thin the icing a bit with milk to make it drizzle nicely."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 14, 2015

"Great taste, oatmeal added nice texture, and the drizzle made this a more special cookie! Put choc chips on top as the recipe says or cookie will be mushy; we ate cookie 20 minutes after out of the oven. Also I cut the chips down to 2/3c., sugars each 1/3c and it was plenty sweet, esp if using skippy or like PB. Natural PB has just salt, no sugar in it. I'll definitely try this recipe again and play around with the type of PB I use."
