      Absolutely FABULOUS! Temp, time and yield are right on (I did get 27 cookies instead of 26!) I used quick cooking oats and instead of adding nuts, I used crunchy peanut butter. These cookies didn't turn out quite as wide as I thought they would (because they don't spread much), but they are nice and chunky plus chewy. Really delicious! These are definitely going on my Christmas trays this year...thanks! Update 12/01/08: I made these last night with Old Fashioned Oats instead of Quick Cooking Oats. This time they spread A LOT! I'm wondering if the quick oats absorb some of the wetness of the mixture, more than the old-fashioned do. Either way, these are delicious cookies!

      Excellent cookies that are easy to make, and a real crowd pleaser! I made these with regular M&M's, of which I only had 3/4 cup, so I used chocolate chips for the remainder. The nuts I used were peanuts, which I thought would amplify the M&M aspect of the cookies. These will definately go on my "make again" list! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag. Thanks for posting, Boomette!

      Great way to get oatmeal cookies into the kids. I got absolutely no complaints! I made them as listed without the chopped nuts but with chocolate chips. They were a hit! Thanks for a winner!
