    I've tried quite a few oatmeal cookie recipes, this has been by far the best one...although I used only 1tsp. of cinnamon, as I don't like them to cinnamon-y,it was the perfect amount if you prefer just a hint of spice to your cookie. everyone loved them..including my kids who don't like anything that may sound as if it has something healthy in it...the 2nd time I made them I added in a package of milk chocolate chips and 2 cups of chopped walnuts. it didn't make them to dry and they still came out perfect. thanks for the recipe I'll use from now on.  -  10 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    OK,OK, I"m not a baker, nor will I ever be..but this is a keeper and a great base recipie. The first time I used shortening...they were good, but the second time I used BUTTER and added dried cranberries and bittersweet chocolate chips, and they were simply OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!  -  22 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
