Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie
This cookie came by surprise, I love, love, love "Pot Belly Sandwich Shop" Oatmeal cookies and this is about as close as I have been able to find for making them at home. Oddly enough I have tried a number of recipes online that just didn't quite make it, when opening the Oatmeal yesterday I thought lets try the recipe on the box. Wow, cannot explain why I hadn't already tried it because so far this is really close. They have just this slight salty taste that is just enough to add another dimension to the cookie---which is what I liked at "Pot Belly's"http://potbelly.com/Home/Default.aspx. Also their sandwiches are the best if you are near one check it out, and make sure you get the cookie to go with it.
recipe from Quaker Oatmealhttp://www.quakeroats.com/home.aspx

1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter-softened
