“this recipe appears periodically on the packages of Imperial Margarine, where it is called, "Regal Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies." it is the ONLY oatmeal cookie recipe I use. I sometimes fool with it by adding extra goodies, but it's great as is. My family calls these "Airport Cookies" because I began making them when my husband was a recreational pilot. I'd whip up a batch or two and he'd haul them to the pilots' lounge at our local airport, where they disappeared...into thin air. (sorry.) they travel well. my daughter, who now lives in Arizona, still asks for these.”
