These really are good cookies, with endless possibilites for variations. I made mine without chocolate chips and added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 c. nuts, and 1 cup raisins. I like my cookies a little bigger, so I used a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, flattened them slightly, and baked about 12 minutes. - 30 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This has got to be the BEST cookie recipe I have ever tried. I made some changes for myself. I used chopped dried apricots and dried currants instead of raisins, and I also coarsely chopped the chocolate chips (I didn't have any miniature ones to use which I prefer over the reg size). But it was the basic recipe for the dough that makes these cookies. Mine turned out outstanding and I'm making another batch right away to ship to my daughter away at college. Thank you so much for posting this!!! - 28 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family really enjoyed these cookies. I split the recipe & added only raisins & peacans to 1/2 & raisins, peacans & milk chocolate chips to the other half. I also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to they entire recipe. They were both delicious. Don't spray the cookie sheet, it makes them come out flat. My first tray did, but after that I didn't spray the cookie sheet & they came out perfect. This is my favorite Oatmeal Recipe now. - 05 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
