"Chewy oatmeal raisin cookies with lots of flavor. You can also substitute 1/2 cup of wheat germ in place of some of the oatmeal, for a different flavor." — Melanie

Finally! After 30 years of many different oatmeal cookie recipes, I have hit upon one my husband really loves! Oatmeal cookies have never been his favorite because he likes chewy--not cakelike, not crispy--CHEWY cookies! He tentatively took one bite, then another and then started exclaiming, "These are really good! Wow! These are sooo good!" They are easy to make (ended up with about 6 doz.), freeze very well, and above all, THEY ARE CHEWY!!
It was trible, very runny. It NEVER set.
I added an extra cup of oatmeal (I used the slow cook kind) and switched out half of the raisins for dried cranberries. I found the extra oatmeal made them chewier and not as crispy and flat.
Excellent cookies - great texture. A couple people mentioned the cookie was "cakey". They didn't follow the recipe then. Follow the recipe precisely and you will get a chewy cookie on the inside, a little crisp on the out. This includes the size in which you bake them in (teaspoon-size, no larger - they'll fan out as they cook).
The flavor is outstanding. This is a definitely a keeper.
Just made these cookies yesterday nad I have to tell you that my son and daughter told me that these were the best Oatmeal Raisen cookies that they have ever had. I have to agree these are exceptional, Great flavor and nice chewey texture. I left out the nuts because they bother my wife.
I needed just a basic oatmeal cookie so I didn't include the raisins or nuts, and just added the egg to the creamed butter and sugar. To tell you the truth, I was initially unimpressed with and concerned about the dough as it seemed dry and it was kind of difficult to incorporate the oatmeal thoroughly. However... these are probably one of the best oatmeal cookies I've ever tried. First of all, they bake up beautifully, and you'd be proud to put them on your serving plate. I mean, they have a bakery look about them. Secondly, and most important, they're just darn good! Crispy on the edges, soft and chewy on the inside, pleasantly sweet with just a hint of cinnamon. Excellent.
