MY REVIEW

"Excellent oatmeal cookies! Made some with raisins and some with chocolate chips.Needed cookies for a bake sale but I'm going to have to save some for myself!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2012

"A bit too sweet for my taste although I typically love the super sweet stuff. Not enough oatmeal flavor and way too much work for the outcome. Perhaps adding raisins would have made them better but I did not have any on hand. They were not a hit at my party only a couple of people ate one and they did not make any comments regarding the taste. But they raved about other things so I sent the huge amount of left overs to work with my husband hoping his co-workers would eat them."

"Mmmmmm good! The best tasting oatmeal cookies I've made. I used butter-flavored shortening and chilled the dough for 60 minutes. Next time, I plan to add a cup of milk chocolate chips."
