Reviews for Chewy Good Oatmeal Cookies
"The best soft oatmeal cookie recipe ever! I used butterscotch chips. Delicious!"
"My husband enjoys these oatmeal cookies. They are good with raisins or dried cranberries too. I chilled the dough and rolled it into balls"
"These were chewy and perfect! I left out the white chocolate chips and added pecans instead of macadamia's. I have made it 4 times already and everybody thinks they are the best oatmeal I have!"
"These were one of the best cookies I've ever made. I used walnuts and raisins no chocolate chips"
"Excellent recipe. Loved all the extra add ins but will add them to my traditional oatmeal cookie recipe next time. I find I prefer the texture of cookies made with the old fashioned oatmeal rather than the quick cooking oatmeal."
"Reading the reviews really helped me! I don't care for white chocolate, but I had a bag of dark chocolate chips. I had no dried cherries, but I had some fancy mixed raisins. I had no macadamia nuts, but I had chopped walnuts! The cookies were fantastic!"
"My family loves these! I used splenda brown sugar."
"I have tried many oatmeal cookie recipes and this is my favorite one! It has a lot of flavor. You can also use raisins in place of the cherries."
"They baked more even when I used my convection oven otherwise they were dark on the bottom and light on top. They tasted great!"
