These cookies are so awesome Raven. Chewy, crispy and chocked full of goodness. I almost (glad I didn't) added raisins thinking an oatmeal cookie just had to have raisins. Perfect w/o. I love your added suggestion of using parchment. I really think that's the reason these cookies turned out as fabulous as they did. Normally I don't have sticking problems with cookies, but these came off so perfectly that I'm going to use it more often for baking. I also added cinnamon to the mix as I LOVE cinnamon. Made as a recipenap for Veg-n-Swap!~

These were completely awesome!! I used Splenda Blend and Splenda Brown Sugar but the rest kept as written. They were crunchy and chewy at the same time. Never knew oatmeal cookies could be great without raisins. I love these they have definitely became my new favorite recipe. Thank you for sharing!

Just made these - they were awesome. I had to use butter flavored crisco as I was almost out of butter, but were still good. I did add some pecans and white chips. Can't wait to try with butter.

Fantastic cookies! And so easy to make. The parchment paper is brilliant. I didn't change a thing other than using dark brown suger in place of light brown (what I had on hand) when I made these. I love them just the way they are. Made for Fall '09 PAC

These cookies are the BEST oatmeal cookies!! Crispy, delicious, and gosh do they smell so good!!! Real old fashioned flavour! I added 1/2 cup shredded coconut and 1/2 cup raisins, too. The recipe references adding salt, but I din't see it in the ingredients, so I added 1/8 tsp. I also added the vanilla with the eggs. Cooking for 15 mins worked perfect for me, and the recipe made 30 cookies. Sorry there's no pic, but I pretty much made them and ran out the door with them, and the group I took them to demolished every last one, even the crumbs! Thank you, Ravenseys for my new go-to oatmeal cookie! Made for Veg*n Swap 12.

Oh how I love oatmeal cookies, such a tastey treat! Now, I didn't have the Old Fashioned Rolled oats, I had Steel Cut oats which I used instead.. wow, now that makes for a crunchy grainy cookie!! Oh and I added a heaping tsp of cinnamon, you can't have oatmeal cookies without cinnamon! Anyway, will try with rolled oats next time to see which one I prefer, but either way, damn fine recipe! Thank you :)

Yes! Eureka! I found the oatmeal cookies that I used to buy in the grocery when I was a kid. I think it's Olsen's. It's sweet, thin, crispy and really good! I used a blend of sugars in here substituting some quantities with sugar substitute so I don't have to feel guilty about eating this. Thanks once again for sharing your Grandma's delicious oatmeal cookies and translating it for us! Made for Veggie Swap.

This is a very nice cookie. I did expect them to be a bit thinner but it may be because I baked them on an insulated pan. I had been looking for my Mom's crispy oatmeal cookie recipe and I know this is close. I think hers may have more brown sugar but very much the same flavour. I baked some as the recipe states and the rest I added 1/3 cup each of semi-sweet chips, milk choc. chips and white choc. chips, Mmmm. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Wonderful cookies for those of us who enjoy the thinner more crispy type. My MIL is 95 and in a nursing home. I take them in for her and now get messages "I have only 2 left - more please" I have made them as written and they are fabulous. I have also split batches and added chocolate chips to some and toffee bits in others. Can't keep them in the house! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful old fashioned recipe Ravenseyes.
