MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2015

"The cookies were much more than I expected in the since of being exceptional. My family loved them! The only change I made was by taking the advise of the other reviewers and adding a little bit more flour. I added about 1/4 additional flour. Like I said the cookies were amazing! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!"

"If you want to bake without chips in- you'll need to add 1/4 a cup of oats and 1/2 a cup of flour, plus 1 tablespoon more.(or more flour, if you feel you need it) Bake at 350 for 10 - 12 minutes. Bake up nice and soft and slightly puffy! If you don't, they'll be flat and runny."

"My daughter asked for oatmeal cookies this Christmas, so I'm glad I found this recipe. I have found that chilling cookie dough before baking helps with spreading. May want to try that with this recipe."

MY REVIEW

"I learned a trick to making cookies from my mother n law who is 73 yrs old. If the cookie dough is really tacky than it usually will cause flat cookies, to keep this from happening add a bit more flour til it is not as tacky. You have to play around with it toget the right consistency. I used whole wheat flour in these cookies and added dried blueberries and ,cranberries left out other add ins and they were awesome!"
