    Sharlene~W's Note:

    One of the best oatmeal cookies I've ever tasted. A definite family favorite. They are fantastic without the optional nuts, raisins or chocolate. Photo by KC Cooker is how these cookies look when I bake them--fairly flat, chewy in the middle with crispy edges. Yum.....

      Shame on me that I never reviewed these. I make them all the time. They are one of my go to oatmeal cookie recipes. I always get compliments and requests for the recipe. They make a thinner, crunchier cookie, and I like them best plain, w/ no nuts, raisins or chips. Came to the recipe today b/c I need a dessert for a kosher friend for a meat meal, and these are parve, an added bonus!

      I may never make a different recipe! I added half a bag of chocolate chips (all I had) and they were great. Crispy edge, chewy middle - just like everyone says. No flavor overpowers another. Completely yummy.

      ya these are good; I was tempted to tweek, as is my wont, but I resisted and am glad; I did place the dough in the 'fridge as I have found that chilled dough works better for me. And DO flatten them a bit, it's what gives the cookie a crispy outer edge and a soft chewy center. Yay Sharlene
