EUREKA! I've found it! The PERFECT cookie. It doesn't get better than this. I tweaked it a bit by using traditional old-fashioned oats instead of quick oats (all I had on hand). I added one extra cup of oats (3 c. total), a dash of cinnamon, and a 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips (they were in the pantry!) to the printed recipe. This is truly the BEST cookie I have ever had. Perfect texture, sweetness, and flavor. My kids are loving them and they usually don't like oatmeal cookies. We will make this one again and again. Thanks for sharing!

I followed the recipe exactly except I used margarine instead of butter and my cookies melted while they were baking! They ended up as blobs of messy,sticky raisins and cranberries in sugar and oats.

Yummy! this could use some pecans/walnuts in it too though. also, I recommend mixing the (c)raisins with the flour mix before adding it to the wet mix to make it easier on mixing

This is wonderful! I make these all the time and everyone loves them!! They always end up asking for the recipe to make for themselves. There is a different texture to them, depending if you use margerine or butter. With margerine I find them to be more thick. But using butter is definately my choice. I find that it gives them a better flavor. Personally, I don't add the raisins but just add more craisins to it. Even fussy kids who don't like raisins love them! If you're looking for a great cookie recipe, definately choose this one!!

I just made these and they came out great. I made two additions--added 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts and one teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Delicious!

oh, These were great! I also added 1 C oats, 1 t cinnamon, and I doubled the crains and ditched the raisins. These were moist and fluffy...

This is a very good recipe- quick, easy and tasty. I used 1C reg flour and 1C wheat flour, ommitted the raisens and added choco chips & nuts to the cranberries. I like the fact that this recipe is versatile-- I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who's interested in giving a new twist to oatmeal cookies.

These were so great! They were gone in 3 hours after they were baked, and I took them to some of my college friends and they loved them, and asked me to bake more. I did add a few extra Craisins instead of raisins, ( I dont like raisins much) and it was still a hit! :) you cant go wrong with these! I did decrease the cooking time a bit, and they were softer and made them more chewy. :)
