My husband is an avid oatmeal cookie fan. I have tried many recipes over the past 40 years of marriage and although he ate most of them - he commented highly on this one. It is very good. I made a double batch and instead of adding 2 pkgs of vanilla instant pudding, I used one vanilla and one butterscotch. It gave it more of a maple flavoring. VERY GOOD!
Tom, my man - I have several things to say: (1) Your recipe has some shortcomings - (a) you don't say how long to bake them (b) you don't say how thick they should be (c) you don't list a gas oven temperature (2) You must have been making some TINY cookies to get 60 of them out of these ingredients! (3) They were overlapping one another when they were done - you should state how far apart they should be while in the oven. I was not aware that they would expand. Despite all of that, and with some pure guesswork on my part, they tasted wonderful. I would have given you 5 stars, but you made me do too much thinking and guessing, so I kept a couple of the stars for myself!
Very good recipe this is the first time I have ever made oatmeal rasin cookies and everyone loved them they continued to stay soft and chewy my sister loves oatmeal rasin cookies and she said this was the best that she ever tasted.....thanks
Very good cookies....Didn't last long...
Great recipe.. I made this recipe along with the soft batch chocolate chip recipe.. Both are wonderful.. They are very esay to make and do not call for any special ingredients.
So easy and so rich tasting cookie
I made these cookies for my dad who lives 2000 miles away and when he got them the entire family wanted tehm and they didn't leave many for him. These are very good. And I'm not much of an oatmeal cookie fan.
I have made this recipe for years, it was on a box of instant pudding many years ago. I use the french vanilla instant pudding, and I soak the raisins in hot water for about 10 minutes, then let them drain in a colander, I also add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. This is the favorite cookie in my family. Make small cookies, add more raisins if you like to. They go fast.
I just baked these soft batch cookies and they are great! I added a tsp of nutmeg and cinnamon because I love these two spices. I only got 40 cookies with this recipe and baked them for 9 1/2 minutes. Hubby says the best oatmeal cookie I've ever made.
I love these cookies. I use dried cranberries or dried cherries instead of raisins. Sometimes I even add white chocolate chips. What a special treat. My family loves them
