My son brought this recipe home from work one day, and asked me to please make these cookies for him. His friend Brian, had given him the recipe. Brian's mom had made the cookies at home, and he would bring them in to work and give my son some. My son William, said that they were so good, so I made them and I loved them as well as my husband, my sisters, and everyone else who ate them. Well, now my daughter's friends want the recipe! Actually some of them wanted me to make the cookies for them so I gave them the recipe and said go for it, they're so easy to make. I know you will love these cookies too they are not your regular chocolate chip cookie. They melt in your mouth, and you can't eat just one. Thank you to my son's friend Brian, and to his mom for the recipe, wherever they may be !
- 2 cups very softened butter (1 pound)

- Finally add the quick oats and the chocolate morsels and, mix well.
- Form into small balls and press lightly with a fork.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on the cookies because they brown very fast and will burn quickly.
- Take them out before they are very brown on the bottom. They will harden after they set out for a few minutes.
- Makes about 10-11 doz. cookies depending on the size you make them. After you have had them in the cookie jar for a while, heat them up in the microwave for 45-50 seconds.
- Tastes just like they just came out of the oven again!
