  1. These were really good! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the recipe needed a little tweaking. I made them as written it doesn't say how big of a spoonful to drop them on the sheet. I made them rather large like I always make oatmeal cookies but they spread out - Read more ...
  2. I made a few changes. Cut out the white sugar and used 1/4 cup honey. Used organic butter. Decreased salt to 1/2 teaspoon. Added 1/4 cup ground flax seed to flour mixture. Added 1/2 grated apple and decreased applesauce to 1/2 cup. Added 1 teaspoon Double Strength Vanilla. Baked at 350 for about 10 minutes. - Read more ...
  3. These were fabulous! I used 1 cup of finely chopped apples in place of the applesauce and omitted the raisins.
  4. can I give it 10 stars? I only used milk chocolate chips but one of the best cookies I've ever made. Every single cookie was gone in less than 20 minutes

  7. Holy cow! I have never rated a recipe on here in my life but I had to rate this one! SO yummy- just what we were looking for. I made the recipe exactly as written- delicious- and now look forward to trying the variations that others have mentioned. Try these!! Today!
  8. Love this recipe because it only uses 1/2 cup butter unlike the usual 1 cup. It also combines my two favorite cookies oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip. My husband and I ate almost the entire batch the evening that I made them.
  9. These cookies were so good! We're trying to make healthier desserts and had tried substituting applesauce for some of the butter in other recipes and ended up with dense cake-like cookies--with more calories than these cookies. These were crisp and chewy delicious cookies and the spices in them were just right. Yum!
  10. These cookies are sooooooooo good! my whole family likes them. There my dad's new favorite cookie. Here's a little tip...after baking these cookies for the first time...I found that after baking 10 minutes...the edges are brown....but the middle isn't done...i just keep them in for 3 more minutes, and they turn out even better!
