Yummie! Youre right, this is the "ultimate" oatmeal cookie. Its chewy and incredible, plus my whole house smelled good. This would be the perfect autumn cookie b/c it tastes like pumkin bread meets oatmeal raisin cookie. Thanks!!

So easy to make and they taste so good! I like the crispy outside and the chewy inside, a real 5* recipe in my books!
