    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
