They were a little too sugary for me... next time I plan on decreasing the amount of sugar but keeping the amt of molasses.
these were very good. I made them as recipe stated. Thanks for the recipe.
Chewy. Tasty. Excellent! 15 stars! These cookies are about as close to ecstacy as one can get. My oatmeal cookies always turn out like mini cakes. Never chewy. I like that this recipe is so versitile, too. I omitted the raisins and substituted 1/2 cup chopped prunes, 1/4 cup chopped, candied ginger, 1/4 cup black walnuts and 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut and the cookies still retained their moistness. The molasses is not overwhelming and the cookies are perfectly sweet. Thanks for this recipe. I will never ever look for another.
