Reviews forChocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
"To make things easier, I melted the butter before whisking in the sugar, and I made them into bars using a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan, baking for about 18 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Let them cool completely before cutting/eating because they probably wouldn't have held together too well out of the oven.They were absolutely delicious! The oats were a little crispy, and they were very tasty. My husband is trying to keep them all for himself. I usually wouldn't make a recipe using convenience items like vanilla pudding, but I happened to have some in bulk I needed to use up (1/2 cup= a package)."
"The dough was very dry and I had a hard time keeping it together on the cookie sheet. They were falling apart. I used Old fashioned oats. I don't know if that made a difference, but I have made other oatmeal cookies with those oats and they were great. Will not make this recipe again."
"cookies were divine.ps: if you don't follow the recipe you cannot exactly blame TOH . just a thought .... use it don't use it."
"They were moist but not a big fan of the oatmeal with them. They were easy to make though."
"I am not a baker BUT you don't have to be! These cookies I baked for church were fabulous and so easy!!! Rave reviews!!!"
"These were simply delicious. The only thing I did differently was I use the small chocolate covered raisins in place of the chocolate chips. I had some left over from the holidays and thought this was a great way to use them up. Will continue to make this way for my family, but if you are not a raisin fan, these are outstanding as the recipe is written."
"Everyone liked these.I made half a recipe and got 39 cookies using my small (2 Tbsp.) cookie scoop.I also cut the sugar, but only to about 2/3 of the original amount. (They still are sweeter than I like them.) I also used whole wheat flour."
"These cookies were delicious. The only difference is that I cut the sugars in half. Everyone raved about them."
"way too sweet and does not make 7 doz. I won't be making them again."
"Delicious! Perfect when craving oatmeal and chocolate!"
