The Amish in our area tend to over-sweeten their cookies so I cut out 1 cup of sugar and they turned out great. I was out of chocolate chips and used raisins instead. I made them bigger than I normally do because the batch is so large. Read More

I halfed the recipe - other than that I followed the directions exactly. I thought the dough did not have the right consistency - I cooked a few batches and the cookies took a long time to cook - and they were very flat - stuck to the cookie sheet. I then added a little flour to the rest of the dough and the next batch turned out a little better. If i make these again, I would NOT put the milk in the dough and I would bake them at 375.

I thought these cookies were just wonderful. A bit on the crunchy side but the flavor is great. Recipe does make a ton even after I cut it in half. Read More

These cookies tasted good in the end but overall were very aggravating to bake. I don't think I'll be adding milk next time as it made the mixture far too runny. The first batch stuck together in a giant rectangle in the oven and I had to cut them into slices! Even then they still seemed sticky although eventually set once I'd laid them on a plate to cool. The second batch almost stuck together and still didn't seem to be set. The third batch I added almost half a cup more flour to and they turned out much better. Also they took at least 30 minutes to cook if not more. I always thought gas ovens cooked faster but obviously not in this case. I liked these cookies although they weren't a favourite but fiance loved them as he really likes coconut and walnuts. So I'll probably have to make them again some time. They were a lot of fuss to make but now that I know to skip the milk they should work out better next time. Try these if you have a lot of time and patience and skip the milk! EDIT: I made these again minus the milk. They still took 20 minutes to cook but were much much better. I'll definitely be making these again now that I know they're far better without the milk.

I made these for a cookie exchange at work. We had all types of cookies and these were the biggest hit! The recipe makes so many that I brought in extra for my co-workers (we work a 6am shift). Only thing I would change next time is to make fewer that is unless it's for a cookie exchange again! Read More

These taste wonderful! I did add a little flour to the second batch that I baked since the first one was a little runny though. Read More

Excellent cookies! I am a coconut fan - this is basically an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie with coconut added which I love. The recipe as posted is really a double batch so convert it for half the number of servings. Read More

I bake tons of cookies and did NOT like this recipe at all! what a waste of ingredients! The milk made the oatmeal soft and mushy in the cookie. I was onlyable to save them by adding butterscotch chips. Read More
