  1. I don't normally care for oatmeal raisin cookies, but I wanted to get away from chocolate so I tried these. I did add a cup of ground walnuts to boost nutrition and these were truly delicious and so simple, we made 2 batches in 3 days!! SO good, worth talking the time to rate (which I don't normally do). Thanks for sharing, will be making these over and over :)
  2. I really enjoyed this recipe. I added 2 tsp Cinnamon just because I love the taste. I found the finished product to be nice and chewy. However I found it to be a touch dry or maybe dense would be a better way to describe it. I think that next time, I will use slightly less oatmeal (2 1/2c rather than 3). Other wise they were very easy to make and the kids loved them.
  3. Wonderful!!!! I made a double batch but turned out my bowl wasn't nearly big enough, so had to mix the dry stuff in by hand...that was fun.. :)
  4. Good and easy to make.
  5. These are so simple to make and my family went gaga over them!!!! This is the best recipe I have found !!!!


I enjoy cooking, baking and cross stitching. I like to see peoples faces when they enjoy a meal that I have prepared.
