Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s currently 91 degrees, on this September Day, in North Carolina. A cool fall afternoon seems very far away, but I’m ready for the leaves to change and the weather to crisp up. These cookies have fall driving all through them and I just can’t wait anymore for the weather to break! A good oatmeal cookie is easy enough to make, but when you make the effort to add nutmeg, cinnamon, and chocolate chips, that’s a love worthy cookie! These cookies are a little crisp on the outside and chewy, ooey, gooey, on the inside. Your house will smell absolutely delicious.  If you were really smart, you’d prep a batch of batter, roll it up like a log in parchment paper, throw it in a ziploc and then freeze.  Right before friends come over, you take out your frozen cookie dough and bake a batch up.  The smell will waft through your house and create a sublimely inviting warmth.

I know these will be one of your favorite cookies to put out this fall🍪
