Chewy and delicious. Everyone that tries my oatmeal cookies gets hooked! I recreated this recipe from memory from my childhood. They are so good, they have a place in every woman's cookbook in my family.

Overall good recipe - I would describe these as a plain oat-oatmeal cookie no raisins cinnamon molasses. It was nice for a change and they baked up well turning golden within the 8-10 minute baking time. I ended up adding some milk chocolate chips to the batter. My family enjoyed these cookies.

This is a wonderful recipe. Reading the reviews I decided to add a teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 eggs instead of one. I also added 1/2 cup raisins. I used whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup butter instead of all the shortening. I think I will use coconut oil the next time. Delicious! Read More

I had a day off from work and came across this recipe. It's pretty awesome easy to do and very quick! It makes a ton of cookies as well. I'm just afraid that I won't have any left for my boyfriend when he gets home from work asking "what did you do today?"... OH I just ate cookies! LOL! Love this recipe! Read More

perfectly chewy! I changed it up a bit by adding cranberries instead of raisins and used rolled oats instead of quick oats. They give better consistency.......basically.......loved it!!!! Read More

Very good. A good combination of soft and chewy an crispy. When I tasted the batter it was a bit salty so next time I might add just a touch less salt or mix it longer. I also used butter because I didn't have shortening. Overall pretty good. Read More
