Reviews for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
"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!"
