Before I made these cookies, I read all the reviews so I could see what others suggested, and I used those comments to make the cookies and think they are delicious! Variations on the above recipe that I made: once the butter, sugars, peanut butter, eggs, oatmeal, baking soda and raisins were added, I removed the pan from the heat. I let it cool slightly before adding the chocolate chips since I noted that some people had issues with them melting. Then, once the cookies were scooped and flattened slightly, I sprinkled with Maldon sea salt before baking, Lastly, I only baked for 11 minutes, and that amount of time was perfect, which I understand depends on your oven, but I wanted to start with less time to make sure I did not burn them. I will definitely be making these again...yum!

Made these twice. First time, BLAH as the dickens and a mess. Everything melted everywhere. Second time, We didn’t melt anything. Just go room temperature on everything PLUS, please People, SALT!!! Salt does add flavor. Also, if you add it, you don’t need as much sugar. We added 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt and the difference was phenomenal.

Very odd recipe. I’d be weary of the eggs cooking and becoming scrambled. Are the chocolate chips supposed to melt? I’ve not made these and won’t; my husband and son aren’t sweet eating guys.

I have made these for years. We call them monster cookies. I did chocolate covered raisins one time and now they are part of the recipe. I also add M

Made these tonight. First, I would let the butter mixture cool to room temp before adding eggs or chocolate chips. My chips melted into the batter. Secondly, 15 minutes was way too long for my oven. 11 minutes, then 5 minutes cooling on the baking tray. I think I will drizzle frosting. Even though there's a ton of sugar they're lacking something...perhaps some salt.

These are so good! Love the huge size. Perfect for a little gift to elderly and the young. My grand kids were so excited and also my elderly neighbors.

These are good but I probably will not make them again; however, for those of you who are gluten sensitive, these contain no flour so they're gluten free if you use gluten-free oats. I'm sure gluten sensitive folks would LOVE these. They're just not my style.

Great cookie! It has everything you could ask for. My kids call them cowboy cookies. Will definitely be making these again.

These are the best cookies EVER! You can substitute different dried fruit - we really like dried cherries -- or use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet depending on your taste. I've also used creamy peanut butter - no matter what the substitute, they are great! I'd give more stars if they were available!
