I have had better Oatmeal cookies from recipezarr, (try Barbara Bush's)!
Very good cookies! I was also making chocolate chip cookies the same day, so I took your suggestion of using white "chocolate" chips in these. They complemented very well. :) Since I wasn't using chocolate chips, I used the Heath baking bits that are simply toffee without chocolate. I also used cherry-flavored craisins rather than dried cherries and baked on (ungreased) parchment. Wonderful cookies--thanks for sharing the recipe! -December 18, 2005 Edited October 21, 2007: My original review referenced a different recipe, which apparently was subsequently merged into this one as a duplicate and the review moved. (That's why some of my comments don't make sense here.) I also don't think that recipe was written as a "slice and bake" cookie, but as a drop cookie.
A delicious soft oatmeal cookie. I actually did these cookies as a drop cookie, and would suggest chilling them as suggested in the recipe as they really spread. I got about 40 drop cookies. I really enjoyed the combo of the cherries, toffee pieces and chocolate. In my opinion, I enjoyed the dough better than the cookies!
