Crispy & Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

cookies 001

Cookies are my favorite snack.  I can eat a lot of cookies in one sitting, it’s always been an infamous talent of mine.  I do my best to always cook my baked goods at home so that I know exactly what is going into my food, and furthermore my body.

Cookies are undoubtedly my favorite thing to bake despite how pesky they can be at times.  I strive to get the right balance between a crispy cookie that’s also moist and chewy.  I came upon this recipe and tweaked it to make it my own.

They are best fresh as they are moist, making them chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside.  Store them in an airtight container and they’ll be just as good the next day with a little less moistness.  Understandably so, nothing ever beats warm, fresh cookies straight out of the oven.

The perfect cookie does exist.
