I have not tried this yet but when I make cookies using 3 sticks of margarine or buttier,<br/>I use: 1 stick butter, 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt. This adds moisture<br/>and the health benefits of olive oil & yogurt with less saturated fat.<br/>I will definitely try this recipe. <br/>miss meanjean

I love these cookies!! If you want to make them even more spectacular, change it to 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of dried cranberries and 1/2 cup of coconut shavings!! Also a teaspoon of coconut extract. Holy cheese - this takes these cookies from awesome to mind blowing!!!

this recipe was too floury & not really an oatmeal cookie, to me. i added more oats but it was still too heavy on the baking soda & sugar for my taste. some friends did say they liked it though. i may incorporate the soaking the raisins in my next recipe.

I have made a lot of cookies in my 48 years and since my husband's favorite is Oatmeal Raisin, most have been this kind. These are by far the best I've ever tasted. Hubby LOVES them! Thanks for a top-notch recipe and description. :)

Great recipe! I used half whole wheat and subbed 1/4 cup of wheat germ for part of the oatmeal. A sweet cookie, not as healthy-tasting, but that is ok with me haha! I love the soaking raisin tip. I did have trouble getting them to be perfectly cooked, but my oven has been on the fritz. Thanks for the keeper!
