If this cookie doesn't come out moist and chewy you've mismeasured something. I doubled the amount of chocolate chips - just because that's the way I like them. Although they're not "beautiful" cookies these were a huge hit with my co-workers. I think I might add a bit more flour to get a nicer shape and perhaps some cinnamon to a bit more flavor. Read More

These are very good cake like cookies. Although I addes 3 cups flour instead of 2. With 3 cups the dough is less runny and the cookies hold their shape better and are more "thicker". Over all an easy good cookie recipe!:) Read More

I usually don't add my 2 cents. As I was reading these reviews before I tried them I was apalled that people could be so unnecesarly rude! I thought these coolies were great. I added 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips though. If I didn't like them I would leave my comments at that! And it made 5 dozen good size cookies! Thank You. And for all those rude people that can't just say "I didn't care for them" I'm sorry. Read More

I don't know how anyone could eat them they are hard and dry. My 4 year old summed it up when he had to soak his cookie in a glass of milk for 5 minutes to be able to bite it and then when he did he said "Ew mom not worth soaking." Read More

I gave this recipe a because the cookies i made were too chewy and almost unbaked while being too browned on the bottom. I believe this was because of the thickness of the cookies that i put on the cookie sheet. I also ended up adding MORE sugar because the dough was bland. overall this recipe would be EXTREMELY good IF "Allison" worked on it well and it seems to have a LEAPING start!!! (: Read More

Since the main complaint seemed to be that these cookies were flavor-free I added another cup of white sugar 3x the vanilla some cinnemon twice the chocolate chips and no salt. I also didn't cook them as long due to my altitude. They definitely don't need to be soaked in anything but unfortunately they still have no flavor. They are sweet but no flavor. We concluded that the cookies just taste like oatmeal with chocolate chips. I gave 3 stars though because I think I might make these again minus the chocolate chips as a "breakfast cookie" that I can grab on my way out the door in the mornings. PS- They did run all over the pan and had no shape but that was ok with me. And they were doughy but I like my cookies doughy. Read More

This is a good recipe if you don't like a sweet cookie. I liked it for that very reason which happened to be the same reason my husband disliked it. These cookies stayed soft for a week. Soaking the oatmeal makes a huge difference. Read More
