This is a "Superb" Oatmeal cookie recipe. They are a melt in your mouth cookie. Very good ! Gave my oldest 'truck-driver' son some to take on a run and now the rest of the truckers at his workplace want me to make more. I would say that is a mighty good compliment for any recipe : ) grammajune

Very good! A nice lightly spiced cookie that has a tender-crisp texture (crisp edges and tender middle). I made exactly according to recipe (except I used all margarine) and I added 1/2 cup walnuts. Cooking time was about 13 minutes for me and I got 27 large cookies. I'm uploading a picture too!
