In order to make these a bit "healthy" as the description says I used olive oil in place of butter and wheat flour instead of white. Also used some nutmeg. Definitally good cookies I managed to get my husband to clean the kitchen by promising to make them again. They're in the oven now. _- Read More

BEWARE!!! There is no salt in this recipe. If you use unsalted butter (as I always do), the cookie comes out really bland. Big flaw in the recipe, so I couldn't rate it higher. Otherwise it turned out fine. Read More

These are perfect cookies. I turn them into health snacks that the kids will even eat for breakfast. I substitute whole wheat flour and about 1/2 cup of flax meal for the all-purpose flour, and mix in whatever nuts and raisins I have. They're not too sweet and just the right texture. Doubling the recipe just fills my Kitchen Aid. I bake about 25 cookies, then roll the rest into logs and freeze. Then we have home-made cook ies anytime we want them. Read More

These are the absolute best oatmeal cookies I've made in my life. It's got to be the honey!:) I didn't have raisins but I put roughly 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips in and about 1/2 cup of craisins in-- my god they're fabulous. They are the softest moistest oatmeal cookies I've ever had-- highly recommended. Read More

This is an awesome recipe. The cookies were a hit with my great grandchildren. It is one of the best cookies I have baked over the last 40 years. It is easy enough that my great grand daughter age (7) helped make it. Read More
