How to make Awesome Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies haven't really been my forte - until now! These cookies are incredibly easy and cheap to make and yield fantastic results. They spread beautifully in the oven and the final product is a deliciously crunchy cookie, packed with oats. They lend themselves well to customization and so you can add spices, nuts, fruit or chocolate to really find a flavor which suits you.
