Nice cookies. These came out on the soft and caky side. Nevertheless, the toasted oat give them a nice flavor.
Reviewed and photographed for Photo Tag Fall 2007. Parsley...these are DELICIOUS!!! The toastie oats and walnuts just make this cookie!I did'nt even add chocolate chips because I wanted to taste them in their natural flavours and I am so glad I did'nt.Thanks for this unique cookie recipe!
great cookies Parsley, I agreee that toasting the oatmeal and nuts bring out more flavor, to avoid excess spreading I chilled the dough overnight, I also increased the vanilla by 1 teaspoon, thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)
