Made a batch of these yesterday and they turned out great!!! Didn't make any changes to the receipe however I did put the batter in the fridge for 20 minutes or so before spooning out onto the waxed paper lined pan. Because the batter was cold I bumped the time up to 13-14 minutes and that was perfect for me, nice and chewy. I used milk chocolate chips this time and plan to go with semi-sweet next time to compare. Don't see how they could be any better though !! Think that I'll put some in the freezer right now just to keep from eating them all today !!!
I made these yesterday with my two-year old daughter and in her words "mmm yum, yum." ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS RECEIPE. Simple, tasty, and will now be our go-to cookie for chocolate chip oatmeal! The only difference I did was I used a stick of butter flavor Crisco (1 cup) instead of the recommended shortening. The calories were the same. Highly recommended
What a great cookie!! The suggestion to use parchment paper was genius.
My kids really liked these. My oldest daughter said they were the best I'd ever made. I plan to put these in my Christmas goodies boxes this year. Thanks for sharing. Well I made another batch of these yesterday. I was doubling the recipe and accidentally dumped in a bag of butterscotch chips. After I swore, I decided to experiment. I used the one bag of butterscotch and one bag of semi sweet chips. They turned out really good. My hubby and kids said they tasted better with the butterscotch and chocolate chips together.
Delicious!! We loved this recipe. I just gave the last of them away because I couldn't stop eating them. Thank you for sharing.
These cookies are great! They are my husband's new favorite cookie. Thanks for such a wonderful (and easy) recipe.
Delicious! These are lovely. They aren't overwhelmingly oatmeal-y (which is great if you're trying to sneak it in there without your kids or your friends knowing). For the sake of experimentation I subbed 1/4 cup of applesauce for 1/4 cup of the shortening and used 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour plus one cup of unbleached regular flour. They were absolutely wonderful like that - so I'm sure they are even better as described. I got a ton of cookies out of this recipe - I made them a bit small, but got around 55-60.
Wonderful! Thanks, Riverside Len! Made for PAC Fall '08.
I love these cookies!!!!!! I only got about 2 dozen cookies so will double the recipe next time. Best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Crispy and chewy at the same time. It is a bit too sweet so the next time, I will reduce the brown sugar to 3/4 of a cup. Other than that, it is a keeper. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
