Oatmeal Crisps are so thin but they are packed with flavor. You will eat a whole stack before you know it!
I am all about a crispy cookie. Soft cookies are just a waste of calories to me.
I have to say cookies are one of my favorite ways to enjoy dessert. So, I am always trying to come up with great crispy cookie recipes.
These oatmeal crisps are obviously crispy, so says the name, but they are also outrageously thin. Don’t let their thin stature fool ya’ though, they are loaded with great flavor and are addictively good.
That thin appearance was a bit misleading when I pulled them out of the oven, because before I knew it and looked down to see 3,4 or maybe it was 5 gone. I had to get myself under control because the photos still needed to be taken. I packed up the extra and stored them in the refrigerator and all were gone by the next day. Yep, they are that good.
