These were good and I will make them again. I put mine on cookie trays lined with wax paper and put one tray in the fridge and the other in the freezer so I could eat them faster. I also let my dough sit for a few minutes in the fridge before dropping onto the trays so it wouldn't be as runny. Read More

They are ok. They came out better than i expected. My niece likes them and it's a good way to get rid of the extra oatmeal we always have sitting around. Read More

These were really good cookies. I instead added a cup of peanut butter and three and a half cups of oats and they turned out perfect! Read More

The recipe calls for to much butter I would suggest cutting the amount in half. The mixture was too liquidy even after I added the oats. I made this recipe exactly as written even boiling as directed yet the cookies were too soft (fluid) and never properly set. I had to scrape them off the parchment paper with a spoon to eat. The recipe requires some adjustments but the taste was good. Read More

These are soooo good! They were a perfect quick last minute dessert that everyone loved. It was also a safe none-oven treat to make the smaller members of my family! Read More
