I am so thankful for this recipe. It really is the best plain oatmeal cookie I have ever had. It has a nice crunchy texture with plenty of butter flavor but not too much to cover the wonderful toasted nuttiness of the oatmeal. In a word - perfect.
Thanks so much for sharing this family heirloom recipe!

What you're saying..
My husband grew up in Michigan and his mother was originally from the hills of Kentucky. I first had Chocolate Gravy one winter when she was visiting. Growing up in the South, too, I was surprised that I had never had it nor even heard about it. Anyway it was rich and delicious and she served it over hot, flaky biscuits.
My husband told me that when he and his cousin were running cross country in high school, before each Saturday race, his mother would make them biscuits and chocolate gravy. Now thanks to Cheap. Fast. Good! I am preparing your version of biscuits and chocolate gravy. Except now instead of heading to a cross country race we will be headed to our son's swim meet. Thanks for helping me carry on a family tradition.
