Oatmeal drop cookies

I wanted to make some cookies that had oatmeal in them and try a new recipe. Now if your husband is anything like my husband, whenever he hears the word oatmeal cookies, he gets a disgusted look on his face:) I knew these would be perfect because they have chocolate in them which help Steve overlook the oatmeal part. They turned out really good and is a great cookie to dip in milk:) This is from All Recipes.
