Reviews for Oatmeal Walnut Cookies
"Terrific! Love that this recipe makes just over a dozen cookies. I cracked 1 large egg in a Pyrex liquid measuring cup and beat it with a fork. It came to about 2 Tbs. 1/4 of a cup is 4 Tbs so 2 Tbs was easy to read in the liquid measuring cup as it is half way up to the 1/4 cup mark. I do believe the recipe is correct calling for 2 Tbs beaten egg. Beat the egg ( or be it eggs if they are smaller) and measure out 2 Tbs. That is what I tried. I do believe you could use 2 Tbs of egg substitute like Egg Beaters as one reviewer suggested. I know mine came out great. :)"
"I added 1/4 cup of raisins to this recipe and it make 17 cookies and they were great.diabetic cook"
"These are great. The recipe is cut way down so that you only end up with 14 cookies, (which I love) so I used an egg white and it worked great. The 2 T is most likely egg beaters or similar product."
"Hi: Upon reading this recipe it say's 2 taablespoons beaten egg. This must be an error. Could someone please confirm this for me. Must be 2 eggs.Thanks.Syl."
