Very very good. Wish I had read the comments about cutting back on the sugar before baking them,oh well, next time. My kids really liked them. Thank You for the great recipe.
For whatever reason, the cookies in the pics are more ball like. Mine turned out a lil flat like snickerdoodles. And followed the recipe to the T. Cookies were fine. I agree with a couple of other raters, I would reduce sugar and add some salt to it.
Thanks for the recipe! Made exactly 36 (even with dough-tasting!). I used instant oats, and cut down on the sugar about a third of a cup and they turned out really well!
Mmmm yum. This is very similar to a recipe that my mom use to make. The only thing I would add is a teaspoon of salt. Thanks for posting :)
These were good cookies. My family really enjoyed them. Thank you for sharing.
These are some delicious oatmeal cookies - wow! I divided the batter in half and threw chocolate chips in one bowl and raisins and choc chips into the other bowl . I don't know which way I like better - maybe I should sample some more of each and get back to you. Boy are they good. Thx for sharing! Update Feb 2009: This recipe has become a favourite at our house. Since I made them again today, I decided to send a photo. Yummy!
Trisha W, my brother was craving for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. In my search, I came across your recipe. It was simple to make, and since my brother wanted a chewier cookie, I baked it at 300F for 8 minutes, and lowered the temperature for 250F and baked it for 8 more minutes. Decreasing the temperature while baking it longer resulted in a chewier cookie full of flavor. I also increased the vanilla extract to 1 and 1/2 teaspoons. My 5-year-old also enjoyed it; thank you for sharing.
These are chewy, yummy and very addictive. They did tend to stick to the cookie sheets a bit, but they turned out just as I had hoped. DELISH!
I used dark chocolate chips (instead of regular) and added dried cranberries. They were amazing. I had a little trouble judging if they were done or not b/c I forgot oatmeal cookies don't brown as much as other kinds. They were great just the same though! Will definitely make again. Thanks for the great recipe!
Fabulous cookie! I liked the combo of ingredients for your recipe so I tried it out. Glad I did as it will be a favorite in our family now. It's crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, just perfect. I used about 3/4 a bag of chocolate chips and reduced the white sugar by half (I like a less sweet cookie). Thanks for posting your friend's recipe. Pam
