    Simply wonderful! I accidentally used all butter instead of the shortening, and added a little more salt. I used a big cookie scoop and baked for 10 minutes. Thank you so much!

    Very good cookie. For our family this was more a healthy cookie versus an indulgence. I think next time I would put equal oats and chocolate chips. They are a bit too crunchy for us and not sweet enough but still very good. The Crisco and the baking powder makes them poof up a bit which is nice. We ended up baking some at 12 minutes and some at 10. The ones at 10 seemed a better consistency. Thanks for posting fruitcake. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game May 2010 Enjoy! ChefDLH

    Great cookies! I made them rather large (dropped them by tablespoons) and got 33 cookies which baked in 14 minutes. The dough is a little stiff but still pliable. I took the hint of another reviewer and subbed the 1/4 cup shortening for peanut butter, a very good idea. The cookies have a very nice crunch and are chewy in the middle. Thanks for posting.

    Perfect balance between the oatmeal and cookie part. Using the rolled oats makes it somewhat healthier too. I used the chocolate/white chocolate swirl chips in my batch. Turned out great!
