  1. These were great and so easy! I had everything I needed for them laying around the house and didn't even know it! The only reason I'm not giving them a five is because I think the baking time needs to be a tiny bit longer. Maybe 2 minutes longer for cookies that are ever so - Read more ...
  2. Just made these and loved them. I changed a few things though. I used whole wheat flour used a 1/4 cup of flax 1/4 cup butter instead of shortening 1/4 cup of sweetened applesauce 1 teaspoon of almond. I also plumped my raisins first. So maybe it's not the same recipe anymore...but it was amazing!
  3. These were easy to make but were to cake like for a cookie.
  4. I love this recipe! I'm not a good cookie baker and i've never made oatmeal raisin cookies but these turned out wonderfully! I used brown sugar instead of white and margerine instead of shortning. I also added an extra 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg as suggested by other reviews. They are so soft - Read more ...
  5. Although these cookies had a good taste these are not "chewy" cookies as described. They were cakey which I find unappealing in a cookie. If you are looking for a chewy cookie pass this one by and try another.
  6. Not the most exciting oatmeal raisin cookie. The texture is strange like little cakes. I added 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice but they were still pretty bland. I won't use this recipe again I don't think.
  7. Perfect....a soft but not chewy cookie that is delicious. I t is the perfect change from the traditional oatmeal hard cookie and the extra soft chewy packaged kind...I will definately make these again
  8. I just finished making these cookies, and I must say... they were delicious. I used butter instead of just shortening, and I ran out of white sugar, so I used brownulated sugar, and couldn't tell difference.Will definitely make again.
  9. I have never made Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. It was my co-workers birthday and she wanted me to make them. I got this recipe and everyone loved them. Deffinate thumbs up.
