I made these today. THEY ARE EXCELLENT! WOW! The only change I made was I added half a bag of Nestle's white chips. They taste wonderful and look beautiful, as well. I will definately be making these again!

I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with a crumbly mess. I only was able to salvage it by adding some baking powder, extra oatmeal, and reducing the baking temperature to 325.

I added the grated zest of a large orange to my batter. These were some of the best oatmeal cookies I've ever made. I highly recommend this recipe.

These were very good. Not too sweet. Tasted good for you. I added chopped white chocolate, which made them prettier and tastier.

Simply amazing! It was a hit among my friends, though i took out the nuts (one friend has a nut allergy) and added twice as much cranberries in it's place. So great; soft, chewy, sweet and easy to make.
