Reviews for Raisin-Chip Oatmeal Cookies
"I used cranberries the grains of cereal that are left on the bottom of the box that are mush I put in lemonchips nutmeg no nuts no raisins and 1/2 recipe they were awesome"
"I also halved the recipe. I used only old-fashioned oats, and they turned out great. How did yours turn out?"
"Think I will halve the recipe. Sounds good. I only have regular oatmeal--do you think it will make a difference?Barb"
