    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Recently in the mood to make oatmeal cookies and was pleasantly surprised to find a recipe that used reduced fat margarine or butter. Adapted to suit my tastes, this cookie is soft and moist. For a crisper cookie bake at 325 degrees. Just know they won't stay crispy for more than a day, if they last that long.

      Excellent recipe, although I did alter a few of the ingredients: Used a whole egg, added 3/4 tsp. baking powder, and used sweet butter. Chose not to add cranberries. Outstanding texture and flavor. My husband was (still is) thrilled. Thank you.

      Yummy cookies. First let me say that I used 1/4 cup of Splenda brown sugar and 1/4 cup of Splenda regular. For me that was almost on the verge of being too sweet with the sweetness from the raisins. I too found the dough to be to dry even though I used 1/4 cup of egg white (equal to a whole egg), I added more egg white- didn't measure- just poured a bit in, I'd say close to another 1/4 cup. I don't have quick oats so used 3/4 cup of old fashioned oats. The nuts were added to mine. The end result is a soft centered wonderful cookie that nobody would even know has been cut in fat and sugar. Kudos toni for a real keeper!

      These were really good cookies, and I love the addition of the spices. I didn't have any other fruit so I increased the raisins. Good recipe.
