Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies

Last week, on our day off (Omi, mommy, Em & G), we went to see "Puss In Boots," cute!  G did pretty well the first half and then we had to climb the stairs in the theater the last half.  Em enjoyed seeing the movie with the triplets and Jessi too.

After the movie, we hit up Noodles and Company for lunch because we can all find something we like to eat there!  Well, of course G got antsy again and started walking the restaurant.  Apparently the guy at the counter thought he was as cute as his momma does, because scored a free cookie.  We were going to share it with Em, until G spit the chocolate chip Em picked out and gave him back on the cookie; Em was done.  I manged to snag a bite before the chocolate chip slimming occurred and liked it, it was a chocolate chip cookie with oatmeal in it, not an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. 

All week I wanted to try to make something like it.  I remembered the myth about the lady who was charged super ridiculous amounts of money for the Neiman Marcus cookie recipe and that it was a chocolate chip cookie with oatmeal.  I found this recipe yesterday and tried it, not too bad.  A little dry, maybe next time I'll sub some of the butter for shortening. 
*the recipe says it will make 50-80 cookies, I made 1/2 the recipe and got about 55 cookies from my medium Pampered Chef cookie scoop--a decent size cookie--I wonder how big their cookies are?
