This is the kind of cookie that would make you run home from school. A nice soft oatmeal cookie that you would never get bored with given the wide verity of stir in's. I made as written using half dates and half walnuts. Thanks for the post.
These were great. I used white chocolate and pecans, delish. Made for DH's pool club at the Elks... they all gave you the thumbs up. This is a nice basic recipe to have around when you're trying to please so many pickey cookie eaters. Hummmm. is there such a thing, as a pickey cookie eater? Thanks for sharing Mom's recipe
We loved these cookies! I only made 1/2 a batch, and wish I had made the whole recipe! They were soft and chewy, and sooooo good! :) I used semi-sweet morsels, and no nuts this time, although I like the fact that I can add anything, to suit my tastes! Your Mama was a smart lady, Lori Mama! Thanks so much for sharing your treasured recipe with us; I know that I'll be making them again!
Great base for cookies! I used mini-chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips and millet. I liked the light crisp texture especially around the edges. I used a medium cookie scoop and baked just a couple minutes more.
Try this with craisins and walnuts! It's one of those just gotta have another recipes. Thanks for sharing it.
I love oatmeal cookies and these did not disappoint. I made these with the chocolate chips at DS's request, but I would prefer them with dates or raisins. This recipe cooked up more accurate than most I've found...I didn't have to cut the cooking time. Loved them. Made for Holiday Tag.
Excellent recipe with many possibilities - you could conceivably use this recipe alone and no one would notice, with all the possible variations! I made simple chocolate chip cookies this time, and DH was stealing them when I wasn't looking before I packed them up for my get together. The dough was a bit softer than I'm used to, but turned out great!! Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag.
Great cookies! Made 1/2 a recipe as I wanted to take a variety to my parents. DH liked them so much I didn't have any left to take! :) These are a new favorite in our house! Thanks Lori! I will be making these often! Made for Every Day is a Holiday Tag!
Yummy little things, I have to say! ;) Like Annacia I used only raisins, which was really nice. They came together quickly and easily and had a very nice crunchy texture. They did taste quite buttery, but I liked that in combination with the oats. I made hald the recipe, which yielded 18 cookies for me. Also I reduced the sugar by half and they still were sweet enough for me (that way you could really taste the raisins in them). I had to bake mine a little longer than stated (~18 minutes), but that might well have been just my oven. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Lori! Made and reviewed for Every Day is a Holiday Tag Game March 2009.
I made these for DH using only raisins. I'm rating then at 5 because I made 24 and by the time they had cooled I only had 18 left and had to make him stop munching until I got pix done. For some reason mine didn't spread but pretty much stayed in the drop shape. As these are for my honey I made them exactly by the recipe using margarine, real brown sugar and egg. Lol, he just raided the cookie jar and gave me 5 fingers with a grin. They are winners :D.
