"I added chopped dried apricots for a tangy addition to an already perfect recipe."

"This is a delicious version of oatmeal raisin cookies! They are m husband's fave and the readers of Taste of Home never fail to share their very best. The recipe does make a LOT of cookies. If you don't have a powerful stand mixer I think you will be in trouble. Whenever I make this recipe I take half of the cookies over to my grandkids, no cookies ever go to waste. I did alter the recipe a little, instead of softened butter I melt it in the microwave, let it cool a bit and then add it to the sugars. I blend it well then move on to the rest of the ingredients. I have found that overbeating the butter and sugar until light and fluffy incorporates too much air into the mix, which makes the cookie dry. Trust me, the butter trick makes a difference; try it with your chocolate chip cookie recipe; tender, soft chewy cookies, yum!"

"This has become my favorite cookie, and I am a notorious cookie monster, have been for over 50 years! I usually half the recipe since it makes so many, and put some in the freezer for later. My co-workers love them too."

"Made these cookies last year for Christmas and they were a big hit. Gave them to neightbors as a gift and they commented on how delicious they were. I did use craisins instead of raisins and white

chocolate chips instead of chocolate . Getting ready to make them again ."

"I ran short of Oatmeal so I added a couple of packs of instant Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal to fill in. Also substituted one cup of dried Cranberries for one of the cups of Raisins. Omitted Chocolate and Coconut to save $. Wonderful cookies!"
