I'm posting this review but I have to say that the recipe was made and rated my my DH. Yup, He has recently become a cookie baker and he's really enjoying it! He was "in the mood" today but there are no eggs in the house currently, hence, the choice of this recipe. He made them with raisins and added cinnamon. His review: "Excellent tasting cookies. I should have baked them for just the 10 mins instead of 14 mins because some of the raisins got too hard. I've ask my wife to save this recipe". I think that pretty much says it all (sometimes I remember why I love this guy :D).
Good cookies! The cookies baked for 12 minutes and I got 47 of these tasty, rather big (they spread a lot) cookies. The dough was kind of "wet" but still easy to handle with two spoons. I did not have any pecans, instead I used another 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. There cannot be too much chocolate, right!!
Thanks for posting.
What a great egg free oatmeal cookie recipe! Since my son cannot have eggs or nuts, I substituted the pecans for dried cranberries, and the cookies were fabulous! Thanks for the great recipe!
