I'm posting this recipe not because these are the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies ever of all time. They're good, but...I'm posting the recipe, because they make amazing ice cream sandwich cookies. And it's prime ice cream sandwich season.



 
 
 
 
Chocolate Loaf Cake
Chocolate Loaf Cake - June 27, 2010
