I had to add more oats about halfway through because the batter was too soupy and the cookies turned out flat. I probably would use 3 & 1/2 cups of oats instead of the listed 2 & 1/2 cups. Otherwise they were delicious! Read More

I had cookies like this once at an apple orchard that I loved so I went looking for a recipe. These are so good! Unlike the other reviewer I didn't have any issues with the batter - it turned out perfectly. I used Red Mill extra thick rolled oats. The cooking temperature and time however left them a little dark on the bottom yet under-cooked inside. So I turn the temperature down to 325 and baked for 15 minutes. Perfect cookies! Read More

Can only give it a 4 star as I love the idea and flavor but mine came out flat FLAT! Carmel baked right out of most of them. Two pans in I add about 3/4 tsp baking powder. I live at 9 100 feet and regularly have issues with baking. Read somewhere that baking powder would make them lighter fluffier more cake like...This did nothing to help. I like this well enough to try them again maybe smaller batch and try more baking powder to baking soda. Read More

Really loved these; I did cut back on the brown sugar slightly (about 1/4 cup) and I skipped the salt. I used crushed up dehydrated apple chips for super intense apple flavor; and I cut up Wer soft caramels for my caramel bits. I also let the dough rest overnight and rolled into balls and pressed them down slightly to get a consistent size for my cookie exchange. Soft chewy yummy. These would be super good hot out of the oven with really good vanilla ice cream. Read More

Loved these. Flavor very good but after tasting, prior to baking, I decided to add a bit more apple sauce and chopped apple bits for extra flavor. I used single serving applesauce cup and about 3/4 cup dried apple bits, and would maybe add a few more. The batter is thinner than most cookies but had no troubles with it as written. These cookies do spread out so I only put 9 per cookie sheet. My oven needed 10 min cook time and definitely leave cool the 3 minutes or more to let caramel harden up a bit before taking off pan. I will make these often. Read More

Did not use the applesauce chopped two small Fuji apples instead. Took the advice of others and turned my oven down to 325. They were still gooey when I took them off the cookie sheet but have great flavor! Shared with our friends tonight at a beautiful fall bon Fire! Read More
