Oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies aren't bad, but they aren't nearly as good as each of those cookies by themselves.
And I've encountered other cookie combos that make no sense to me. I bit into a cookie on a tray at my workplace the other day, thinking it was an oatmeal cookie. No such luck. It was an oatmeal-peanut butter cookie. Ugh. Boy, was that terrible.
I love homemade butterscotch icebox cookies, but now I see that someone has created an oatmeal-combo recipe for them.
Do you like molasses cookies? They happen to be my favorite. But even they're being tampered with. Someone has created a recipe for peanut butter-molasses cookies. That sounds positively revolting.
There's even a banana-oatmeal-chocolate chip recipe lurking out there. Are they kidding me?
