      Wretched! is what I was thinking as I formed these cookies. These are a disaster. So why am I rating 4 stars? Because I don't like to slam anyone's recipe and because I made some last second changes to help alleviate a disater that just might be to someone else's liking. First---If you made 12 cookies as the recipe called for they would be the size of dinner plates. So I changed to 1 tablespoon per cookie and wound up with 36 3-inch cookies instead. Second---I tossed the chopped apricots with about a teaspoon of the flour called for so that they could actually be mixed into the dough. Otherwise I would have had some apricot cookies and some oatmeal cookies, but few apricot-oatmeal cookies because those apricots tend to hang out together. Third---I had to wet my hands and press the cookies out to shape them, because the dough was too sticky-which meant I was not going to get a tender, chewy cookie. Fourth---I baked on an insulated cookie sheet at 350 for 11 minutes(I'm sorry but I hate the look of raw dough--I have to have a little color). What I wound up with was by all accounts edible, not too sweet with a sort of cracker texture, but with some chewiness from the oats. I don't think I would make again, unless I was wanting to make a crisp cookie, and if I did I would definitely add some cinnamon, or spice mixture to it to liven it up a bit. Lots of ginger comes to mind. Hope this helps someone out there avoid a mistake or steers them toward something they might actually like.

      I really liked this cookie. It was moist and not overly sweet which made them my kind of cookie. It went very well with my hot tea. I used a 1/4 cup to form my cookies and got more than 12. Thanks Lennie Bullwinkle.

      This is an excellent cookie which I will keep making. I followed the instructions exactly as outlined. The recipe has been frequently requested by my friends who are into outdoors activities. Definitely a keeper.
