    Mmmmm, this is good...

    Nagisa D. from Saint Leonard, MD

    My teenage son was asking for chocolate chip cookies. This recipe caught my attention because of oatmeal. It also looked easy. He doesn't care for oatmeal and I've been secretly mixing it in his meals when I can... sometimes he catches me, but not in these cookies! "Mmmmm, this is good..." and the cookie was gone in a second. I'm going to make these again with different flavored morsels. I already have some ideas on how I want to decorate them. They will be perfect for holiday seasons!

    SWIRLED Surprise Cookies

    Angelina Rogers from Akron, OH

    Several of the woman from church and myself are making over 600 dozen cookies for the Labor Day Holiday coming up. These are among the several I've selected to make. I have lots of dough premade, and baked up a few for my husband to "try", and he loved these. I know our cookie booth will be a hit with all of the NESTLE cookie recipes we are making............

    Swirled Suprise

    James Smith from Park Forest, IL

    Liked the Recipe, just thought that it should say that the butter should be unsalted or salted. I assumed that it was unsalted because of the addition of the salt later in the recipe.

    Mandy DeFinney from LONDON, ON

    i just baked a batch of these cookies and they are easy to make and very yummy! I only baked them for 7 minutes but I have a gas stove and usually things bake quicker. I also used a 1/2 tsp measuring spoon to make the indent and it was a perfect size for the additional chips.

    Swirled Suprise Cookies- very good

    Cheryl Beck from Ogilvie, MN

    I tried this recipe and found it quite delicious and fairly easy. But the cookies look like you fussed for hours. They are heavenly. It would help to say how much chips to microwave to drizzle on top.
