  1. This makes a great holiday cookie/candy but with a few clarifications on the recipe. First I used quick cook oats so the end texture is chewy but not dry uncooked oats. Second I kept all the ingredients as written except increased coconut to 1 cup. Bring sugar milk marg (or butter) and vanilla to a - Read more ...
  2. I am so confused about this recipe! The bad reviews all sound like people were cooking the oat mixure which is NOT called for. Just boil the sugar mixture then remove from heat and add the dry stuff (think rice krispy treats). So I thought mine would turn out good since these people must have - Read more ...
  3. Five stars for simplicty - and Four stars for recipe with alterations! I nearly cut the amount of sugar in half - using only 1 1/3 cup sugar! The cookies were sweet (not too sweet though) - so I believe you can easily use a generous 1 cup sugar without compromising the flavor. I followed - Read more ...
  4. I also adjusted the boil time to 2 minutes and increased the cocoa a bit--and made teaspoon sized cookies - everyone loves them! I'd made a similar recipe for years but always overcooked them.
  5. These are my husband and daughter's favorite "cookies". They are actually somewhere between a cookie and a candy. I only use 1/4 cup (1 stick) of margarine. Also, I agree only two minutes after mixture comes to a boil or you'll have a pan full of crumbs. A yummy treat!
  6. I wouldn't call these bad but I wouldn't call them great either. I agree with my wife; she called them "weird." My biggest complaint is not the flavor but the fact that they never set. 1 1/2 hours of cooling on the table 4 hours of cooling in the fridge 2 hours of cooling in - Read more ...
  7. I make these at night right after the kids are in bed and usually they are gone before morning my husband likes them so much he waits until I am in bed then sneaks to the kitchen. I normally combine peanut butter and coconut - the best!!
  8. Cookies are fantastic but don't boil as long as recipe says. Two minutes is all that is needed.
  9. I've been looking all over for a good macaroon like cookie recipe and thought I would give this one a try--it was a total waste of ingredients: too sweet too much oatmeal...it says to spoon onto wax paper well its pretty hard to spoon out a bowl of crumbs. YUCK!!
