These cookies are excellent! A few changes I made, due to supplies on hand: -I used 1c quick oats and 1 3/4 c steel-cut oats -I used butter instead of margarine or shortening -I used 1c dried cherries, 1c walnuts, and 1c chocolate chips. They turned out amazing! I increased the baking time 1-2 minutes, but I was baking using parchment paper and with two cookie sheets in the oven at once. They tuned out chewy for me and are one of the most delicious cookies I've ever made. I will definitely make them again; I'm looking forward to playing around with the dry ingredients to add other things in the future! Oh- and you get a HUGE batch of cookies. My Kitchen-Aid's bowl was almost overflowing with dough. I got over six dozen cookies!

Although I am "new" to baking, I got the VERY BEST reviews on these cookies this morning! I pulled the recipe last night, bought all the ingredients and whipped them up in no time! Very simple, measurements are exact...however; I do suggest using quick oats to give it the moistness needed in an oatmeal cookie. Bake for 9 minutes (rather than 8) and cool on cookie sheet first, then rack... You will be delightfully surprised as the moist and crisp hit your tongue all at once! KUDOS for this recipe! ***** (FIVE Stars!)

This recipe is a hit! I've made it for my employees as a special treat and I am taking it to a cookie swap tomorrow night. I added a dash of sea salt on the top for that contrast in sweet n salty. SO good and very easy to make.

I was not really impressed. I thought the flavor was lacking. A little too much flour taste. The texture was fine. I guess I was expecting something different.

Just finished baking these cookies. They ARE very good, had to increase the baking time to at least 15 minutes. The cookies would be even better with more walnuts and cranberries. The recipe made 42 cookies.

These were very good. I used rolled six grain instead of just rolled oats and they turned out great. I also added some cinnamon to 1/2 of them just because I like it in oatmeal like cookies, both ways are yummy. They are more of a crisp cookie which is not my favorite, but worked well w/ these.
