Chocolate Shot Oatmeal Cookies

When I think of oatmeal cookies, I always think of the ones my mom makes at x-mas time.  So I had her recite the recipe over the phone so I could make the oatmeal cookies.  After my mom shared her recipe, she shared a memory about this cookie dough: She always made this dough the night before so it could chill. Well sometimes she made too much and would freeze it. One day she remembered there was some in the freezer and thought it would be a nice treat for us. What she discovered was half the dough had been eaten. My sisters and I loved this dough especially frozen. We would pull it out of the freezer, cut a chunk off, and nibble on it.  I hope you enjoy these oatmeal cookies!
