Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

I've been in the meal for oatmeal cookies over the last few months.  I call it breakfast.  Once upon a time, there was a recipe on the back of the cartons you would buy of oats, I've been on the hunt for the best oatmeal cookies and this one is definitely a top contender.  I liked it so much I even wrote it down on a recipe card, which I rarely do anymore because you know, the Internet.    It originally came from Pioneer Woman.  I cut the recipe in half because summer is only 9 months away and there are swimsuits and such that will need to be worn, but for now....I'll make these cookies and pile on the sweaters.
