What superb cookies! I would never have added cinnamon to oatmeal cookies before finding this recipe and now I think it will be a permanent addition. I didn't have any packed brown sugar, so I used 1 1/4 cups of a golden granulated sugar, plus two tablespoons molasses. The cookies are crunchy and soft at the same time -- pure heaven, as the name suggests!
WOW!! Heavenly is an UNDERSTATEMENT!! These are so easy to prepare (1 bowl) and they come out so moist! I made one batch with just raisins and added the chocolate chips to the second batch - wonderful! My oven only needed 12 minutes for the cookies to come out golden brown. I really like these, very moist and plump as well as attractive. Great recipe, thanks for posting.

This recipe is soooo good- especially when made with the butter. I did an oatmeal raisin batch that was delicious, we ate them all up that night. So the next day I made a batch with choc. chips instead of raisins and margarine instead of butter. They were good too, but the ones with butter were truly heavenly. In both I used light brown sugar instead of dark since I didn't have any on hand. I dropped spoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet and got about 48 cookies out of the recipe. This is my new oatmeal cookie recipe!
