YUCK !!! i am a pastry chef in new york city and i found these cookies horrific!!! they were heavy and full of chunky oatmeal ! the cookies didnt even look good. the cookies were also very greasy and were not good for clothes stains! HORRIBLE i would not waste time and supplies making them again.
I don't know if these are the very best oatmeal cookies ever, but they are very good. I used dark brown muscovado sugar and also added some chocolate chips to half of them. Very easy to make, moist and light with a subtle oatmeal taste. Thanks for sharing.
I don't know how someone could find these to be heavy! Mine were light and crispy with a light chewiness to them. I used a hand mixer on medium-high speed for all stages (I was in a hurry), so maybe that made them lighter. I used half quick oats and half old-fashioned. I added 1/4 cup butterscotch chips and 3/4 cup semi-sweet chips, making the cookies taste like light, crispy chocolate chip cookies. Also added a scant 1/2 tsp butter flavoring to the shortening for a nice buttery flavor. I will definitely make these again. Thanks!
These were great! They tasted wonderful and also had a great texture. Easy to make and very popular to eat at this house.
These are delicious!!! I will definitely be making these again. I added dried cranberries but I think they'd be good anyway possible.
what can I say? These cookies were DELICIOUS! They were really soft and chewy & my first bacth was already gone before the second came out!! I also added 2 tbsp. honey & 1/2 cup applesauce. Thanks for this great recipe! :)
These disappeared in a hurry at my house. Quick to make, too. I think these would be good with a little coconut added.
Delicious cookies. They're a little light on the oatmeal but definately have an oatmeal flavor. Easy to make and work well on non-stick cookie sheets.
Good cookies. They do toughen up quickly. A few seconds in the microwave will revive them tho. Good flavour and chewy. I got only 18 good size (my size) cookies. Will try them again soon. Thanks
These are a great cookie. Nice and chewy. Will make great gift packages as well.
