This “one cup” cookie recipe is our go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. Oatmeal and rice krispies make these cookies crispy and delicious.  one-cup-cookies

The recipe I’m sharing today is another one of my Grandmother’s recipes. One she shared in our Olsen family cookbook — pretty much the bible of cookbooks in our home. It’s one of those cookbooks you can tell has been used a lot.

I hope you enjoy. And I bet you’ll have a hard time going back to plain old chocolate chip after you make these. 😉

Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. I received this scoop as a gift a few years ago. It works awesome for measuring just the right amount!
