These cookies are delicious but they did spread alot. I substituted 1/2 of the butter with canola oil it was still fantastic. I will make these again but I will eliminate greasing the pan and maybe add an egg white to keep it from spreading. Thanks for recipe! Read More

The cookie dough itself was absolutely delicious! But the cookies spread alot so they have to be spaced out on a baking tray about 5 cm apart. The cookies were delicious and I'll definately make them again. Read More

I made these with my kids. It is such an easy and fun recipe. I did have to adjust my cooking time a little but that is to be expected. With different ovens the cooking time will vary. We will make these and hand them out for Christmas at my husbands office and the kids are going to make some for their Teachers! I think I will make some extra like one reviewer said. One bite and they will know that they are in for a real tasty treat. I think these are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever made! Read More

First time I made it did spread a lot indeed. It was delicious but I found it a bit too sweet so the second time I put less sugar a little bit less butter (1 cup only) and added a banana. It was wonderful! It didn't spread too much and they were less sweet. The banana gave a special taste. I'll keep on making this recipe it's my favourite cookie! Read More

I made these cookies for my friends and roommates and they have been declared the best cookie of all time. I added two things to make these cookies absolutely spectacular: I mashed a banana and mixed it in with everything and I also added a handful of flax seeds for some nice crunch. I kept the cookies on the soft side and the banana flavor with the flax seed crunch with the oatmeal comfort made these my new favorite cookie. Read More

I knew AR would come to my rescue! I used this as a base for a pumpkin cheesecake streusel bar recipe that called for a packaged oatmeal cookie mix and it didn't disappoint. Thank you for posting this recipe! Read More
