These cookies are incredibly good. I thought at least with the oatmeal and raisins they'd have something healthy in there, but I'm just afraid they're better than that. Like Goldilocks, these turned out "just right"; not too soft, not too crisp, perfect, petite, and YES! even dainty. (If you can imagine a dainty oatmeal cookie, this would be the one.) From now on, this will be my oatmeal cookie of choice!
These cookies turned out great! Wow, soaking the raisins makes all the difference. Two of my kids (raisin haters) cringed when they saw the cookies and I pleaded with them to give them a try. They were absolutley amazed. They gobbled them up. The directions were perfect and easy to follow. Thank you, Thank you! I too will throw way my other oatmeal cookie recipes. This is the one!
Yes, this is a great cookie recipe. I originally found the recipe in the "Colorado Cache Cookbook" published 1978.
Lives up to its name "best oatmeal" cookies.....they are amazingly delicious...!!!! My adult children keep asking me to send them more!!!:))--Simple ingredients and easy to make...allow for 1-hour to soak raisins. And dough is a dry type, but cookies come out full and not spread thin!!
Flavor was good, left out the nuts due to allergies and doubled the raisins. The dough was extremely crumbly and dry. Next time I may add another egg in hope this will help bind the dough together better.
This is my husbands new favorite cookie. It is the best recipe that I have found. Chewy yet crispy. I substitute cranberries for the raisins.
Chewy and delicious. This is now my go-to Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe. Make a double batch. Family couldn't get enough of them. Took them to a cookout and they were a hit.
reminder to self. do not choose a new recipe when cooking with a child. soaking time is really long for a 5 year old. lol
Perfect! I made this today, I didn't have pecans so I used some grinded nuts and coconut mix I had in the fridge. Turned out perfect! so easy! Thank you so much for a great recipe! I highly recommend trying it!
Great recipe! Only one problem. If you roll them into balls and slightly flatten them, they come out way too thin. Just drop by teaspoon and they are perfect. Thanks for my son's favorite cookie!
