    Easy to make following good, clear instructions. Sadly, the mix stayed in heaps & looked rather unattractive. Lovely flavour but more cake than cookie.  -  21 Sep 2013


    I don't usually like to give a review unless it's positive, but these cookies were very disappointing. I expected more from a "five star" cookie. They were flat and difficult to remove from the pan even with the addition of extra flour. I posted this only so someone else might save their ingredients for a more worthy recipe.  -  29 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The dough was VERY moist. Instead of adding more flour as noted in other reviews, I added another 1/4 cup of oats. (I used the quick cook oats.) These cookies DO stick to the pan but with more oats they can be removed much easier. The chocolate chips are awful in this recipe and I love chocolate so leave out the chips!! I also sprinkled some of mine with a cinnamon/nutmeg mixture and they ended up with a snickerdoodle type taste.  -  26 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
