I love oatmeal and sugar cookies so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. I let the dough sit in the fridge overnight and then baked the next day. They taste just like a sugar cookie with oatmeal and are wonderful. Read More

Intresting idea an oatmeal/sugar cookie combo but unfortunately the cookies came out pretty dry though the flavor was nice. They sort of reminded me of mini scones. Read More

Good tasting cookie. I used butter instead of shortening substituted 1/4 cup flax meal for 1/4 flour used whole wheat for the rest of the flour did not refrigerate and baked 2 large cookies at 350 to use as fruit pizza crust. Read More

These are wonderful! I had to use the link to scale the recipe in half because I found to my dismay that I was severly low on flour but since there's only 2 of us it's not a bad thing.. I still wound up with 16 cookies! I changed nothing except the vanilla- I left that amount the same as in the regular size recipe because I love vanilla. I hate hard-like-cement cookies and these are so far from it. YAY! Thanks for sharing! Read More

delicious cookies but they came out too flat for me (most cookies do though) so I made some frosting with powdered sugar butter vanilla and milk and I sandwiched frosting between two cookies. They were delicious- like Little Debbies but better!:) Read More
