Reviews for Oatmeal Chip Cookies
"Halved the recipe. Baked two dozen and put the rest of the cookie dough in the fridge for later. Love freshly baked... I don't feel quite so guilty using oatmeal for part of the ingredients. (Also didn't put nuts in as I usually do). Used my big mixer and put all dry ingredients into the bowl at one time. Used half butter and half shortening as the cookies don't flatten out as much. Wonderful with a cup of coffee!"
"Best oatmeal chip cookies I've had! Will definitely half the recipe when I bake them just for my family."
"I cut the recipe in half for a quick after school snack for the kids on a cold snowy day. I added a tiny hint of cinnamon to bring out some warmth. They paired perfectly with hot cocoa!"
"These are really good! We love our cookies to be slightly crunchy yet soft in the middle and those were just that. We halved the recipe and used gluten-free flour but other than that it was the same. They got rave hits with everyone who ate them!"
"Very good! I didn't have time to chill the dough so I baked them as drop cookies. Turned out great."
