    pretty tasty! everyone agreed they were good, but they were fairly unremarkable and didn't disappear like cookies normally do in this house

    Great cookie! Loved the chewy texture. The kids finished these off in not time at all (and mom and dad helped a lot).

    I made these for co-workers and they raved about them! Great flavor, texture and just enough chewy to make you enjoy every bite! Thanks!

    Wonderful! Crispy and chewy cookies with lots of maple flavor. The combo of oatmeal and rice krispies is awesome. Nice to have an oatmeal cookie without raisins, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
