      Excellent oatmeal raisin cookie, not rock hard, just slightly chewy the way I like them. The decorative jar is attractive, but I found that once the ingredients were allowed to remain in the jar for a couple of weeks, I needed a spoon to work the hardened packed brown sugar out of the jar, and then needed to rub the mounds of brown suger between my fingers to separate before mixing the ingredients. The entire mixing process was very hands on, so I would recommend plastic gloves. To have perfectly shaped cookies, I would leave about 1/2 inch more between the cookies to allow for the spread; unless I split the conjoined cookie edges prior to lifting off the cookie sheet, one of the cookies was likely to break apart before it reached the baker's rack (those were my samples). I ended up with 42 cookies. Thanks for posting, Toni! Made for 1-2-3-4 Hit Wonders.

      Wonderful cookie. I skipped the jar part and went straight to bake. These were being baked for a dear friend, but oh dear, a cookie broke, must eat it! I have never really cared for oatmeal cookies in general, but these have changed my mind. Mine spread and thinned pretty much, but that turned out to be perfect. They are slightly crispy around the edge, and chewy goodness right through the middle. I will be making these again and again. Thanks so much for this recipe.
