Reviews for Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookies
"The perfect cookie! It's crisp on the outside, and chewy on the inside and has a warm cinnamon flavor. I did not need to add extra flour, but I refrigerated the dough for 15 minutes before shaping."
"Love this cookie. I substitute 1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce for 1/3 cup butter. Cuts the fat & makes a softer cookie."
"The taste itself was quite good, but they came out flat and just a little bit burnt. Reading from the other comments here, I think I should've added some extra flour."
"These were delish...but I will try with margarine or shortening next time. Mine were crisp, not chewy...am at 2500 feet so maybe that was a factor..."
