I love oatmeal and sugar cookies, so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. I let the dough sit in the fridge overnight and then baked the next day. They taste just like a sugar cookie with oatmeal and are wonderful.

Intresting idea, an oatmeal/sugar cookie combo, but unfortunately, the cookies came out pretty dry, though the flavor was nice. They sort of reminded me of mini scones.

Good tasting cookie. I used butter instead of shortening, substituted 1/4 cup flax meal for 1/4 flour, used whole wheat for the rest of the flour, did not refrigerate, and baked 2 large cookies at 350 to use as fruit pizza crust.

These are wonderful! I had to use the link to scale the recipe in half because I found to my dismay that I was severly low on flour, but since there's only 2 of us it's not a bad thing.. I still wound up with 16 cookies! I changed nothing except the vanilla- I left that amount the same as in the regular size recipe because I love vanilla. I hate hard-like-cement cookies and these are so far from it. YAY! Thanks for sharing!

So great! I made them using butter and omitted the raisins and then frosted with home-made butter cream frosting. Holy Moly!!!! They turned out wonderful!!

WOW the taste is very YUMMY !! I also put about half cup of pineapples, and half cup of sugar instead of the cup, and the other half of artifical sugar. Very easy to make . share more...... : )

Very good, I will definitely make these cookies again. Made 40 cookies. I did grease the cookie sheets. My oven temperature was set at 350°. Didn’t realize until after baking the temperature said 375° in the recipe. Anyway they were perfect. Thanks.

delicious cookies, but they came out too flat for me (most cookies do though) so I made some frosting with powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk and I sandwiched frosting between two cookies. They were delicious- like Little Debbies, but better! :)
