Reviews for Spiced Oatmeal Cookies
"These are great cookies. Super moist and soft. I will be making these again."
"These are the best. They are so great."
"Yummm added broken up left over heath bars form Halloween and some pecans-had three eggs to use up so did a batch and a half , all butter and used 4 Tbs of cream instead of milk and they flattened nicely-I also used a silpat instead of greasing the cookie sheet -definitely could play with this recipe and add more spices, nuts, choc or butterscotch chips, dried fruit etc. Definitely making this one again"
"I like to use cookie scoop amounts of dough and found these came out a little heavy and the texture was course. They seemed to lack either some liquid or more shortening as it seemed they could have flattened out a bit more in the oven."
