My husband and I really loved these cookies. However I added about 1/4 cup of flour after the first batch of cookies came out thin and flat. The second batch came out thicker and held together better. I also did not flatten them with a fork and I only put a tablespoon of dough for each cookie.
Yummy! What a great recipe! The only thing I changed was substituting an entire individual serving cup of applesauce (unsweetened) for the margarine and decreasing the sugar to 2 cups (and i could have even decreased it even further without it hurting the cookie). However once i mixed the dough i realized that i had used rolled oats instead of the quick cooking oats (they were the only ones i had) so i let the dough sit in the fridge for a while so that the oats could absorb some moisture and soften up. I then baked them (using a smallish ice cream scoop) and they turned out so soft and delicious. The first tray was undercooked a little but they had such a lovely melt-in-your-mouth texture that i wanted the underbake the second batch too but that one happened to bake perfectly darnit. But it was still soft and delicious just not as tender. All in all a great cookie.
I started making and eating these cookies 34 years ago when I was 14 years old! It is great to see them on AllRecipes.com. These cookies are great if made correctly (DO NOT ADD FLOUR to these. It will be a whole different final product)! In 34 years I have never seen one of these as big as a dinner plate. The best way to make these are to drop by heaping tablespoons(serving not measuring) or from 1/4 cup measuring cup (packed). Then only slightly press them down to NO LESS than 1/2 original heigth. Also for variety try M&M's (plain or peanut) instead of chocolate chips and/or chunky peanut butter instead of creamy. The raisins are also a good idea. You will LOVE them!!
These were exceptionally easy to make and were really quite tasty. However they were a bit too chewy for my liking so the next time I will grind half of the oats for a finer texture. I refrigerated the dough and shaped them into 2 dessertspoon sized rounds. I didn't bother flattening them and they didn't spread much at all.
4 out of 4 people in my house decided that these cookies just weren't that great. I quit after making only about dozen or so. The flavor of these was just off somehow - too much peanut butter maybe? I'm not sure but being as how our family loves cookies we know when a recipe isn't to our liking. These weren't.
I didn't think these cookies were going to turn out at first i'll admit i subsituted one ingredient and that was the peanut butter for pea butter since i'm alergic to peanuts and it's the same thing but my batter was to dry to make into cookies so i put it in a cake pan with a bit of water and it's still a bit crumbly but good.:D
instead of mashing them thin (with the fork) make BALLS this way they don't go flat. they're GREAT cookies very chewy and VERY tasty. everyone loved these. one of the best batch of cookies i've ever made!
