Reviews for Family-Favorite Oatmeal Cookies
"We liked these very much.They are softer then the ones I have made in the past and I like that.I did add more oats and left out the raisins as I don't care for them..but I did add more nuts because we love nuts.I will make these again."
"These cookies were pretty good. I thought they needed more oatmeal and more raisins. They were moist and almost cake like. don't think I would make them again unless I adjust some things to my own taste."
