five star cookie recipe. but be warned; these are the type of cookie you cannot stop eating; the texture and taste are great. i did have to make a few changes; first i changed it to make 21 cookies and the recipe worked out fine. (i didnt want to have lots of cookies lying around in case they turned out great; good thing i thought ahead!) and i didnt have any fresh brown sugar so had to use sugar in the raw. i opted to leave out the additional white sugar and i used organic bulk oats so i dont know if they were quick cooking or not. they were very easy to put together and the taste was super even without the white sugar. i found them definitly sweet enough. the texture was nice; chewy and soft but the texture of the oats was detectable which made it have some substance. i used a chopped up organic dark chocolate candy bar instead of the chips per my daughters request. they were excellent and will make them again. thanks for sharing.

Made these tonight and they were fantastic. Crispy outside, chewy inside. Will make these regularly.

I got fifty chewy, sweet oatmeal cookies and the baking time and temperature were spot on, which has been unusual in my experience. I used chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, and might add raisins for variety in a future batch. Delicious and, for me, a bit nostalgic; we made cookies like this in my small-town childhood. Thanks!

Like another reviewer I also added raisins instead of walnuts. The cookies were easy to make and I got 40 cookies, they baked for 15 minutes. Both the chocolate chips and the raisins sort of disappeared, no taste of either in the finished cookie which was very crumbly and stayed that way.
We liked them but I have had better, therefore three stars.
Thanks for posting.
