My family's favorite and I can't show up for Christmas without them! If you're a chocolate lover, you can use chocolate chips in place of the raisins.

It is important to mix all wet ingredents first. Then add dry slowly. Do not over work mix. Add a tad of salt or 1/2 tsp. more cinnamon for extra zip. Read More

I found these cookies to be fairly easy to make although it seemed to have alot of ingredients. I did not think they were sweet enough. I would try using 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortning next time. Read More

These did not last very long around our house. It was impressive that they remained fresh tasting and crisp even after a day or two. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins because I prefer them....and it's a nice holiday color. Carol Cyr Read More

Oatmeal cookies must be chewy! Too much flour and not enough oatmeal the texture is too thick and doesn't flatten out on the cookie sheets when cooked. I reduced the flour to 1 cup and used 3 cups of oatmeal and then they were much better. I also used dried cranberries because I can't get my family to eat a raisin. That worked great! Read More

I'm not a fan of oatmeal cookies usually but this turned out very well. I used chocochips instead of raisins which might have helped. Read More

These cookies were not very good! They puffed up in the middle and were dry and brittle around the edges. They didn't have much taste. Maybe it would help to add the ingredients in a different order. Read More
