This is so freaky !!! I have used this exact recipe for 10 years!!Except I do one thing differrent,I roll the balls in a combination of 1 cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon..Makes all the difference in the world. I bought a paperback recipe book at the dollar store and this recipe was in it. I have been doing fairs for 7 years and won 6 blue ribbons with this recipe. A family favorite.
Best oatmeal cookie I've ever made! I used real butter, toasted my walnuts before adding them and then chilled the dough for 20 minutes before rolling into balls. Cookies stay chewy and moist after baking. Great flavor, sure to stay a family favorite.
I am pleased with the way these cookies turned out. I did as another reviewer suggested and rolled them in cinnamon/sugar and they both look and taste very nice. I soaked the raisin mixture overnight and that seemed to turn out well. I used unsalted butter instead of shortening which was fine... Oh, if you don't like rich/sweet cookies, these probably aren't for you, but if you do, I think this recipe is worth a try. EDIT: The next day, these cookies were still soft and chewy. My husband says these are the best oatmeal cookies he's ever had, and he doesn't say that sort of thing lightly!
These are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever made and ever tased...bar none!! I omitted the walnuts because we don't like them. My husband has forbid me from making them again unless we give the majority of them away because he could not stop eating them.
Hands down, THE best oatmeal cookie I have tried. I don't use raisins but instead sub in choc chips or butterscotch chips. Awesome. You can also roll the balls of doung in sugar before baking for a nice shiny crisp outside and tender inside. FIVE stars all the way!! Add ingredients as directed!!
Ok, you've heard it before in other reviews but it bears repeating- these are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had! LOL! And I don't even like oatmeal cookies that much. I made them for my DH who loves them and after one cookie he said, "Wow! These are really good!" I think this will be our recipe from now on. I did sub chocolate chips for raisins but otherwise followed directions exactly. Baked on pampered chef stone for 14 minutes first batch and 12-13 minutes following batches. YUM. I'm going to go eat some more!
These are delicious!!!! I added 1 cup of semi-sweet choc. chips and about 1 teas. each of cloves and nutmeg for extra yumminess!!! I also substituted butter for the shortening. Great recipe!! Thanks!!!!
Too time consuming when I already have a great recipe but wanted to try it. I think I needed to cream the sugar much more than I did (by hand) because it was so dry I couldn't even add all of the oats! Three eggs are the only liquid! Not sure I will try again.
