This is an easy, dependable recipe. Every time I make these I get rave reviews. Plus, you can substitute the raisins with butterscotch chips for a nice twist.

This is a classic cookie -- easily mixed all in one bowl and irrestible when they come out of the oven. I added nuts to half of mine, just for a change and that was a nice addition. Particularly liked the cinnamon in them and the slightly crunchy texture.

My cookies came out sticky and didn't seem to have enough flour. I checked the recipe several times as I went along. Just to be sure(after my cookies came out of the oven to sticky), I checked this recipe with the one on the Quaker Oats web site. This recipe has 2 more Tablespoons of butter and 1/4 c. MORE brown sugar than their recipe...which explains exactly why mine aren't turning out like the cookies I remember. Sorry, but I am a bit disappointed.
