Gimme, this is interesting. I've been using the "NM cookie recipe" for almost 20 years. Surprisingly, it's nothing like the recipe you linked! It contained quick oats blended to flour and a shaved milk chocolate bar. I felt the chocolate masked other flavors so I left it out of the recipe. Since then, the cookies have tasted great but have been super flat and thin. I decided today to look for a different recipe.
I have an Alton Brown recipe for chewy cookies and was planning to make that. Now I may try this one instead as my first alternative.
Thanks for the link.
