These have been all over the internet lately...and usually, if something is all over the place it must be pretty good, right?
These are my new favorite cookie. But since I am a cookie dough eater person, I definitely ate more dough than actual cookies. Whatever way you get this stuff in your mouth, I'm glad you did it.
I made these with my brothers yesterday and we could NOT STOP 'testing' the dough. I think we went through 20 spoons. Then the actual cookies came out and we could NOT STOP EATING THEM.
They covered our lunch and dinner, I'm pretty sure.
And they're all gone now. Did I mention we made these yesterday afternoon and it's now only 7:30 in the morning as I write this?
Next time, me and the littlest brother decided to skip the cookie part and just make the dough to eat, which we found a recipe for on Pinterest from the-girl-who-ate-everything. We are dough addicts.
I promise if you make these, 2 things: your jeans won't fit for the next week, And everyone in your life you share these with will love you more than they ever have!
If you want to make them Gluten free (which we did) It's super easy! Just use GF quick oats!
