I made this recipe just before we showed our house. Not only did the people buy the house, but they requested the recipe.--Nancy Fridirici

So happy to add another 5-star review to a recipe that already has an average 5-star rating! It IS a perfect cookie, one that is beyond any criticism. It is, as others have noted, crispy and chewy at the same time. But it is also light and airy, buttery and delicately oat-y. I used quick-cooking oats and fall-colored M&Ms in lieu of the chocolate chips, which made these especially pretty. Flawless- the simple and classic oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Read More

These were the BEST cookies! The only change I made was using quick oats, it's all I had on hand. I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves. I really think that made a huge difference, the smelled wonderful cooking. I cooked them at 350 degrees for 11 minutes exactly, then let them stand for about 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before I removed them. They turned out absolutely perfect. I made the first batch with the chocolate chips that's called for, then I made another batch with raisins instead. They both turned out PERFECT! Thank you so much for this recipe! Read More

Really great basic oatmeal cookie recipe. The only changes I made was that I used whole wheat pastry flour and I added some cinnamon. Also I used the quick cooking oats and I think next time I'll try just regular oats for some more texture. All in all they turned out great and taste really good! Read More

Excellent cookies. The entire batch was gone within 48 hours. My only critique is to watch the oven time--mine were done in 8 minutes. Read More

Followed this recipe exactly as written. These cookies were good, light and chewy in the middle. Even better on day two, after being cooled and packed in a tightly sealed jar. I found they baked up rather thin compared to the other oatmeal cookies I usually bake ('soft oatmeal cookies' from this site). The only difference in the recipes is that the other recipe has an extra cup of oats, and this one has baking powder...and of course choc. chips- though I add those to the 'soft oatmeal cookies' too. Next time I may try this recipe with an extra 1/2 cup oats and perhaps some cinnamon. This recipe would also be great with raisins or craisons. Thanks for the recipe & great idea doing some baking before an open house! Who could resist?!? Read More

Not too happy with my cookies sorry. The cookies turned out crumbly with a grainy type texture rather than soft and chewy. I think I'll look for another recipe. Read More

These cookies are the current family favorite! As others have said, crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Only change I've made so far is to replace 1 cup of the chocolate chips with 1 cup of peanut butter chips. I'm considering tweaking a bit by replacing some or all of the sugars with sugar and brown sugar substitutes, and at least some of the flour with whole wheat flour - to make them a bit healthier and figure-friendly, especially since these cookies are so addictive!

Love these!!! I didn't have enough butter so I had add about 3 tablespoons of shortning, but the taste and texture was still awesome. I got distracted with my kids and accidently cooked them for 13 mintues...they were a little over done. Next time I will cook them for 11 minutes as stated. Read More
