Chewy Oatmeal Cookies with Apples, Pecans, and Cinnamon Chips

Some people HATE nuts and fruits and oats in their cookies.  I mean there's even groups on facebook named something like...'Get out of my cookie, damn nuts!' or 'Stay out of my cookie, you nasty raisins!'...and more of the like.  Well, I am NOT a member of any of those groups.  I'll gather up all of those members flavors and textures and colors and throw them ALL in my cookies, thank you very kindly.  'Get in my cookie nuts/raisins/fruit/oats/variety !'  Yes, that's it today.  Just some delicious chewy cookies with a gorgeous golden thin outer crust for your chewing pleasure....
