    Easy and the best consistancy ive ever got my cookies to!! Put in slighty less oats, and half a cup of raisins, beautiful!!!  -  28 Jan 2013


    Overall I quite liked these cookies. I did find there were a little too many oats, but that may be down to personal preference. Reduced oats to 2 1/2 cups, added 1/4 cup of Raisins and 1/4 cup of mini choc chips. Followed the recipe exactly  -  12 Jan 2013


    These were fantastic, but NOT moist! First, you do not need to dip the fork in sugar when you press these cookies flat. They are sweet enough! Don't press the cookies flat if you don't like thin & crispy cookies. Leave them in little balls for thicker and more chewy cookies. Finally, I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the batter and then divided it into 3 bowls. In one, I added 1/3 cup of raisins, in another, 1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and in the last one, I added 1/4 cup of dried cranberries and 1/4 cup of shredded coconut. They needed a full 10 minutes to bake and they were all DELICIOUS!!!  -  29 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
