    Very very good. Wish I had read the comments about cutting back on the sugar before baking them,oh well, next time. My kids really liked them. Thank You for the great recipe.

    For whatever reason, the cookies in the pics are more ball like. Mine turned out a lil flat like snickerdoodles. And followed the recipe to the T. Cookies were fine. I agree with a couple of other raters, I would reduce sugar and add some salt to it.

    Thanks for the recipe! Made exactly 36 (even with dough-tasting!). I used instant oats, and cut down on the sugar about a third of a cup and they turned out really well!

    Mmmm yum. This is very similar to a recipe that my mom use to make. The only thing I would add is a teaspoon of salt. Thanks for posting :)
