Wonderful! I've made this recipe a bunch of times and like it much better than my old no-bake recipe. They always turn out just right. I've found the recipe can hold quite a bit more oatmeal than called for, that way I can justify eating them for breakfast :p

My mom made these and alot of other things when i was young. These are one of my favorite cookies and now my daughter's. I like to try to different things so i have added butterscotch chips, vanilla chips, coconut, peanuts,& toffee chips in with them. They all have all turned out good and rich. I didn't use them all at the same time but would be worth trying.
