      I made these for DH and he says 5 stars all the way. The recipe is very quickly made and yields very flaky/crisp edge with a softer center. Be sure to keep a watch on them as mine were well browned in 10 mins and wouldn't have tolerated another 2 mins. Also, be sure to allow plenty of room between cookies because these little fellows spread like South Fork!. I made a 1/2 recipe but I should have made the full one, DH was just in the kitchen cookienapping as I'm typing this review *wink*.

      Great cookies! I have fallen in love with dates recently and they were a really wonderful addition to these oatmeal cookies. I agree that less baking time is needed, but I think it may depend on your oven -- so watch them carefully. These cookies definitely spread out during baking so you do need to give them plenty of room. With DH around, these cookies won't last long. Made for PRMR, October, 2013.
