    WOW WOW WOW! However, I did make a few changes--butter instead of shortening, two teaspoons of vanilla (added right with the eggs), and an extra cup of oatmeal. Absolutely chewy and delicious! I only cooked them for 10 min at 350, but left them on the trey for 5 min to firm up well. Thanks, even better then the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe from Nestle!  -  23 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Gave it 4 stars cuz I had to change a few things to make it 5 (I hate it when people review a recipe and rate it based on what they changed! They're not rating that recipe anymore!) Don't listen to other reviews and substitute butter... you'll just have flatter cookies NOT tastier! I added 1/2 c. oats, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and halved the amount of salt...5 stars now!  -  04 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wonderful cookie! I made a few changes though, 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, 1 tsp vanilla and you only need to bake them 7-10 minutes. A nice, soft/chewy cookie with wonderful texture from the oatmeal. My Kids and husband LOVED them. Thanks, Tammy  -  13 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
