"Very moist (don't cook them too long), very rich in flavor, yet somehow not too heavy. Grandma's recipe! Even people who don't like oatmeal raisin cookies do like these."

These were wonderful cookies! Very moist and chewy. I halved the recipe, but used the same amount of cinnamon and they were very tasty. I was concerned when I finished mixing the dough that it was too wet, and the cookies would flatten when cooked, but they stayed in a nice little mound.
The spices in this recipe were excellent, and the cookies had a great flavor; my only complaint is that the cookies are very dense and your mouth feels strangely sucked dry of all its moisture after each bite. Also, (this may be an altitude problem), I had to cook them a couple extra minutes, and I needed to flatten the cookies prior to cooking them or they cooked in near-perfect balls, haha. The first batch looked pretty funny.

This recipe brings back great childhood memories! It's like the one my mom use to make. These are a BIG hit over here in Germany by my kids and in-laws , they know all kinds of German cookie&cake recipes and know I can finally show them some American cookies!! THANKS LISA
Very Good. Made it a little healthier by using Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and 1 cup applesuace in place of 1/2 the shortening. I also added 1 cup walnuts. I will make again!
This recipe is great, and I don't like Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I loved that you can taste the spices and that they turn out soft, not hard like every other Oatmeal cookie I've had before.
i loved them they were so chewy
A very very good oatmeal cookie. The flavor is excellent with all the spices. MMgood!
