Nothing better than a yummy cookie to dunk into milk, coffee or hot cocoa!

Top Review by French Tart

Absolutely fabulous! I am not a real sweet tooth person, but these appealed to me as the ingredients looked interesting and I LOVE oats! I made ONE change - I felt that with the already sweetened craisins (cranberries) and raisins, that the sugar quantities were a wee bit too much for us, so I used a total of 1 1/2 cups sugar and used ALL light brown sugar - with GREAT success! The addition of the cardamom seeds was AMAZING and took these oatmeal cookies to a HIGHER taste level IMHO! I used toasted walnuts for a more mellow flavour and my yield for these cookies was 36 large ones! I made this for the Photo Recipe Swap, but these will NOW be a firm favourite in our house - so tasty and I might even reduce the sugar a bit more next time to about 1 1/4 cups total! Thanks Vicky!
