These were the best oatmeal cookies I have tasted in a long time! I used the old fashioned oats-this gives them more texture, I hear.

These are really great and very tasty. Surprisingly I had to increase the cooking time a little as they were coming out too soft and sinking instead of staying nice and puffed up! They still tasted great though!

What superb cookies! I would never have added cinnamon to oatmeal cookies before finding this recipe and now I think it will be a permanent addition. I didn't have any packed brown sugar, so I used 1 1/4 cups of a golden granulated sugar, plus two tablespoons molasses. The cookies are crunchy and soft at the same time -- pure heaven, as the name suggests!

WOW!! Heavenly is an UNDERSTATEMENT!! These are so easy to prepare (1 bowl) and they come out so moist! I made one batch with just raisins and added the chocolate chips to the second batch - wonderful! My oven only needed 12 minutes for the cookies to come out golden brown. I really like these, very moist and plump as well as attractive. Great recipe, thanks for posting.

These are great!! If any of you like cinnamon as much as we do...you should try half chocolate chips and half cinnamon chips....WONDERFUL

This recipe is soooo good- especially when made with the butter. I did an oatmeal raisin batch that was delicious, we ate them all up that night. So the next day I made a batch with choc. chips instead of raisins and margarine instead of butter. They were good too, but the ones with butter were truly heavenly. In both I used light brown sugar instead of dark since I didn't have any on hand. I dropped spoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet and got about 48 cookies out of the recipe. This is my new oatmeal cookie recipe!

These cookies are wonderful, I made them to send to my son who is in the Navy and my daughter who is in college. I think I am going to have to make another batch or two. My husband and son-in-law are eating them all up!!! I subsituted light brown sugar for the dark (I didn't have dark and I rarely use it) and they turned out very very good. I also used some left over milk choc. instead of regular choc chips and another winner. Thanks LaLa for a wonderful recipe!!!!!

These are great cookies! I almost skipped this recipe because it makes 15 cookies. I didn't want giant cookies so I made them smaller and got about 30 cookies. These spread out as they bake - they are not thick cookies. Baked in 12 minutes. I didn't butter the baking sheet, but I let them cool about 30 seconds and then removed to the wire rack and they did not stick at all. I thought the flavor improved as they cooled. Next time I will increase the cinnamon. I'll have to try with chocolate chips sometime as well. Thanks, LaLa.

Fantastic!!!! I took these to a dance and everyone raved about them. As one lady put it they are crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. I followed the recipe as written except I added extra cinnamon. This will be my oatmeal cookie for now on. Next time I will add chocolate chips. Thanks so much for sharing.
