    spatchcock's Note:

    Oatmeal cookies are my BF's favorite, so I've tried LOTS of different recipes. This is the BEST one!!! I found it online somewhere--these are sort of crunchy, not cakey at all, and not overly sweet. YUM!

      I rarely bake anything but I had the ingredients on hand for this and tried it. Well I jus might be a "baker" now. These were good!! Just like real "homemade" Oatmeal Cookies. Thanks Melismak.

      These cookies passed the 3 year old cookie fanatics taste test and will be added to my weekly cookie baking menu. Crunchy and great tasting. Thanks for the recipe!

      A pretty good soft oatmeal cookie for those who don't care for raisins. It could use a little spice I think. Thanks for posting.
