Made these a couple times but with chopped pecans and dried cranberries since that was what I had on hand,these were very good,I bet they would be even better with macadamia nuts

Very chewy and soft. Had to use parchment paper to separate them together and keep them from sticking together. I might add a bit more flour next time since mine spread out and were a little thin and see if that helps, but still a great chewy cookie.

Good cookies. I used dried cranberries and pecans instead of cherries and macadamia nuts. I have made these a couple times now. Very good.

I made these last night, and used a diced apple and dried cranberries in them. Next time, I think I will skip the white sugar, add a little more brown, and maybe more honey. They are good. I know they're supposed to be chewy, but they seem soggy and hard to store because of that.

My favorite chewy oatmeal cookie that I have made several times. I usually add raisins or chocolate chips instead of the cherries or nuts.

Which did you change your format? The list of ingredients and directions can't be viewed at the same time. I can no longer print out recipes or send them to my mailbox. Don't care to hand copy them.

My husband enjoys these oatmeal cookies. They are good with raisins or dried cranberries too. I chilled the dough and rolled it into balls

These were chewy and perfect! I left out the white chocolate chips and added pecans instead of macadamia's. I have made it 4 times already and everybody thinks they are the best oatmeal I have!
