These cookies are excellent! So easy to prepare the main batch and store it. I divided mine up and sealed in a food saver bag. I just took a bag out of the freezer a month later and made the cookies and they turned out perfect! So easy! Read More

These cookies tasted good but looked so bad I couldn't serve them to company! I read and reread the directions to make sure I was following exactly and had no luck. Read More

Being lactose intollerant it can be hard to find a good recipe for sweets. This one is awesome. It's also a good base recipe to play with. I've added cinnamon cocoa nutmeg and so far have yet made a bad cookie with this recipe. The only word of warning would be that it _may_ not store great for the 8 months mentioned. It will still make great cookies but the longer it sits it will lose something in the end result. But that's not the fault of the recipe. Thanks for this recipe! Read More

Glasswalker I hope it was a typo you wrote and you meant weeks not months! LOL. I did not have chocolate chips so I chopped up a chocolate bar that had white chocolate in it! Yum Read More

Ha! This is hilarious. I didn't really "read" the directions. I copied the ingredients and then thinking I know how to bake I just started combining them. I thought the mix was really dry (go figure!) and so I added enough applesauce to make it sticky moist. I added raisins and ground flaxseed and baked them. They came out wonderfully - and so good for you too! Thank you! Read More

These cookies are so yummy! I added raisins but instead of a whole cup I only used a half cup. I've been looking for a good oatmeal raisin cookie recipe for a few years now. Finally I've found one that is really good. Thank you! Read More
