Nice cookie recipe. Boy did mine spread! And I agree that 400 is too high of heat, my first batch was burnt on the edges and raw inside. So I lowered it to 350 and the next batch looked a lot better. I'll admit they taste great!

This is a very nice recipe. I was scared to bake the cookies at 400 degrees, so i lowered the temp to 350 (the way it usually is). the flavor is great, and the texture is really soft and chewey. thanks for posting!

This made a nice dessert tonight! My first batch I overcooked, but the second was perfect,and so yummy. I halved the recipe, cause I'm the only one eating these. Goody! Thanks so much! Oh, I did use old fashioned oats, don't think it made too much difference.
