Name that Dessert Revealed

In this post, I started a name that dessert challenge due to some technology issues.  Then I got impatient decided I did not want to keep my readers waiting and uploaded the pictures any.  So, now I am going to reveal the mystery dessert.  It is one of my favorites!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!  This combination of flavors is one of my favorites.  It all started years ago with a cookie from Potbelly’s.  I was never a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, and when I discovered this little gem, I was hooked.  (Irony- I do not like raisins, so I do not like oatmeal raisin cookies.  I do not like chocolate, but like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  weird; I know!)

This recipe has probably yielded the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have ever made.  I enjoyed the crisp edges and chewy center texture.  I made these a little smaller than normal, using my 3 TBS volume cookie scoop.  I also used mini chocolate chips instead of full sized chips.  Yes, I think they made all the difference in texture.  The mini chips provide a little textural contrast to the cookie without being too much.
