Really excellent! You know how when you have raisins that have been baked and they get hard and burned? That's doesn't happen with this recipe at all! They stay very tender and are perfect. The best oatmeal raisin cookies ever. They are best within a few days of baking. Makes a lot, but you will have no problem with them hanging around.
This is really one of the best oatmeal cookies I've tasted. Soaking the raisins in the egg really made a huge difference. The cookies are soft. Thanks for sharing this Merrie! I documented the process in my blog.
the best ive ever made!
These cookies are ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Soaking makes a world of difference. I thought they weren't going to be this good because it was an easy recipe, but boy was I wrong.
did not have quick oats so i rehydrated whole oats, and mixed the eggs in after it cooled. i never use as many eggs or butter as the recipe says, but i added some coconut cream, and used brazil nuts, because i had them. i think you could double up on the raisins, i buy raisins from the bins and they are a bit more moist. i forgot the salt first batch, then added it to the rest, and can't tell really. i spooned them as drop cookies, and had to boost the oven to 400. i use my cast iron griddle and parchment paper, and change batches each 15 min.
Easy to make Dairy Free! - These cookies turn out plump, chewy and flavorful. To make dairy-free, I just substituted the 1 cup of butter for a 1 cup combination of coconut oil and non-dairy margarine. I also didn't have raisins, but used cranberries instead. So yummy! Thanks for the recipe!
the idea for soaking the raisins is great and earns this recipe five stars just on that alone. It has way too much butter for my diet, so I only put in 1/4 cup (1 stick) instead of the 4 sticks it called for. It also has too much sugar (most things do, I don't have a sweet tooth) so I put 1/4 cup brown and 1/2 cup white sugar. I used walnuts instead of pecans as I had them on hand. As I was mixing all ingredients together I drizzled 1/4 cup olive oil and 6 Tbs of water over the mixture just to bring it together. I formed dough balls by hand (wetting my hands with a bit of water) and then used the back of a wooden spoon (wet) to flatten them out a bit. Baked as per instructions and Wow! They are super tasty!
These cookies really are the Best Oatmeal Cookies I have tried in a long time. I will be using this recipe for my family from now on.
I forgot t put in the stars
