"I didn't want to take the time to make regular cookies so I made a half recipe as bar cookies in a 13 x 9-in. well-greased pan and baked at 350 for 20 minutes. These are very good cookies, tasty and fairly moist. I used 1/2 cup each of regular milk chocolate chips and miniature semisweet chips, but otherwise used the listed ingredients halved. Thanks to mreilly615 for comments about making these as bar cookies."

"Great cookie! Versatile - could use raisins, peanut butter chips, chopped peanuts - for a different cookie each time. Love oatmeal cookies!"
