Reviews for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
"The dough was very dry and I had a hard time keeping it together on the cookie sheet. They were falling apart. I used Old fashioned oats. I don't know if that made a difference, but I have made other oatmeal cookies with those oats and they were great. Will not make this recipe again."
"cookies were divine.ps: if you don't follow the recipe you cannot exactly blame TOH . just a thought .... use it don't use it."
"They were moist but not a big fan of the oatmeal with them. They were easy to make though."
"I am not a baker BUT you don't have to be! These cookies I baked for church were fabulous and so easy!!! Rave reviews!!!"
"These were simply delicious. The only thing I did differently was I use the small chocolate covered raisins in place of the chocolate chips. I had some left over from the holidays and thought this was a great way to use them up. Will continue to make this way for my family, but if you are not a raisin fan, these are outstanding as the recipe is written."
"Everyone liked these.I made half a recipe and got 39 cookies using my small (2 Tbsp.) cookie scoop.I also cut the sugar, but only to about 2/3 of the original amount. (They still are sweeter than I like them.) I also used whole wheat flour."
"These cookies were delicious. The only difference is that I cut the sugars in half. Everyone raved about them."
"way too sweet and does not make 7 doz. I won't be making them again."
"Delicious! Perfect when craving oatmeal and chocolate!"
"I've made these twice now to take to gatherings with friends, and they always receive great reviews! The only thing that I would note is that I don't think the recipe makes 7 dozen cookies. I made a half batch last night and probably got around 30 small cookies out of it."
