these were really good BUT, I did add raisins and chopped nuts (I can't have oatmeal cookies without either of them, lol), otherwise I made them as they were. I'll definitely make these again. Hubby and company loved them too

The recipe is perfect as written. The cinnamon gives it a unique touch. I highly recommend this recipe.

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.

I used a Food Processor for the oats and made it a fine powder. I didn't have enough brown sugar so I made my own, using the food processor. 1 tablespoon Light Molasses to 1 cup white sugar. I rolled the dough into ping pong ball size. That way they get a little chewy. I am passing this one on to my friends at the gym. This made 60 cookies at 73 calories each. Great for breakfast.

Very good cookie! I used 1/2 c margarine and 1/2 c butter for the shortening and used quick oats instead of old fashioned.
