Absolutely delicious! Recipe was quick and easy. I did half the recipe and still ended up with 20 cookies! - 21 Dec 2012


This is the best cookie I've ever had! I found leaving the dough in the frig overnight enhanced the falvour and chewy-ness. I've also tried replacing the oats with barley - that gives it a new dimension. If you only try one new cookie this week, or month or even year - make it this one! - 24 Jun 2012
