    They were pretty good! The insides are like cake and the outside is crisp. Don't use this recipe if you are looking for chewy cookies. I recommend adding a little (1/2 tsp. to 1 tsp.) cinnamon also for more flavor. I agree that they were pretty pale -- don't leave them in the oven longer b/c you think they need more color b/c they'll burn! The cinnamon adds a little color also....I bet nutmeg would work well too. I would make them again. They're very fast and relatively easy.  -  20 Apr 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe was the best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe that I've ever found, although I did use 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract and I left out the walnuts. I dropped the dough in very small balls and wound up with many more than anticipated.  -  04 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very tasty cookies. Flavor may be too rich for some, but not me! We sometimes substitute apple sauce for the butter to reduce the fat content. Cookies w/the apple sauce are chewier and more moist. Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing.  -  14 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
