These are basic oatmeal cookies. The cookie dough needs to be chilled as directed for best results. Instead of almond, you can use vanilla extract.
You can try adding 150g raisins, sultanas, currants, dried cranberries or chocolate chips.
These cookies were GREAT. I did make a few alterations though - added 1 tsp of cinnamon and decreased the baking time to 10 mins. They remain soft and the cinnamon gives it a little extra umph! - 25 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were delicious, however I made a few changes. First, I used 1/4 C MILK instead of 1/4 C water. Then I added 1/2 tsp salt with the dry ingredients. I also increased the flour to 1 1/2 C because I live at a high altitute (7200 ft). The dough was delicious! I cooked them on my baking stone for 11 minutes and they came out perfect. - 20 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I tried this recipe...it tastes good but the cookies were crumbly not chewy...any ideas why. - 26 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
