Anyone have a really CHEWY oatmeal cookie?

dianne0712 | Sep 10, 2011 07:14 AM

I am not fond of oatmeal cookies, but my husband and son are. I could stand them if I could find a really chewy recipe; not a crispy one, not a soft one, not a cakey one. You know, like a chocolate chip cookie with the chewy/crisp edges. Is there something about the nature of oatmeal that makes them refuse to be chewy? Does anyone have a good recipe or am I just doing something wrong? My friend gave me a recipe, but it has coconut in it and so little oatmeal you can't really tell they are oatmeal cookies. Help!
