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.
delicious!! not dry like some oatmeal cookies seem....gave these jars out as gifts and everyone loved them! Thanks for the great recipe
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.
This is a great year round cookie recipe and a terrific gift idea.
These were great! I was pulling up recipes by random pick (at bottom of page)and this was my first pick. I had been looking for recipes in a jar for christmas presents. So glad I found this one :) I ran a test run before making for gifts. My husband ate the first batch before the second came out of the oven, so that will tell ya that these were delicious. :) They were very easy to make. I just threw all the dry ingredients in one large bowl and the butter,egg and vanilla in a small bowl and blended well than added to the dry mixture and combined as stated in the directions. In my oven the cookies only took 10 minutes but everyones oven will bake differently. I will be keeping this recipe for future making for either gifts or when we are wanting cookies. Thank you for sharing the recipe!!
I put this together for the cookie swap and it looks very pretty; the picture doesn't do it justice. I used dark brown sugar for some contrast. I also used a plastic quart container instead of a jar. Everything fit perfectly! I'm hoping after my swap partner receives this, she will make them and review the finished product. Thanks for making my first attempt at a "jar" gift successful!
