These are good. I added coconut omitted nuts. Also subbed 1 cup brown sugar for 1 c. of white. They are very chewy moist etc. I found cooking time needed to be extended several minutes. I baked 8 min. bottom shelf and 8 min. top shelf. Mine weren't dry at all. Next time I would add more cinnamon more raisins. Also I got 4 dozen good sized cookies. Can't imagine how large they'd have to be to get only 3 dozen they filled the cookie sheet as it was. Will make again. I have toddlers hence omitting the nuts and I like the fact they are getting some fiber/nutrition (raisins oatmeal). They were a hit with the kids! Read More

I thought the flavor was good but the cookies were dry - even when I reduced the cooking time. My husband and children liked them even so. Read More

Just made these cookies with no nuts or raisins and substituting honey for molasses. They were delicious and very chewy - almost fell apart when I picked them up because the were so soft. Read More
