I work as a baker in a very busy cafe and this has become our most popular cookie. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!I always get a nice thick chewy cookie with consistent results everytime. I don't care for raisins, so i have never used them, but always add toffee bits instead for wonderful results. I am not understanding why some of you are getting a flat cookie, but what i do is just make sure i always use butter, make sure it is not too warm, and i never measure it out because 1 lb is 2 cups..no need to measure. I also always make sure to use a shiny aluminum sheet pan (which almost always gives the best results for cookie spreading),and i top it with parchment paper instead of greasing the sheet. I typically use a #40 scoop for reg size, or #20 for jumbo cookies. I Bake them just until set, and they are the perfect size and texture. HUGE seller. Good luck!
I was intrigued by the description of this recipe and was disappointed after I made it. Don't get me wrong, it was a decent enough cookie but, it's an oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips.
Okay, so I know this is my own recipe, but that makes me entitled to a review, right??? I had a friend who made these for Bunco one night, and she said she makes a batch of the dough, rolls it in saran and freezes it. Just slice and bake. There was absolutely no difference in flavor (I have had these so many times I'm definitely and expert...) and the texture was perfect. As another reviewer said, these cookies ROCK! I normally make them with heaping tablespoonfulls, so the cookies are very large, but if you want to freeze them, you can make the rolls of dough to be whatever size you want.
Saw the recipe yesterday and made them this morning - GREAT COOKIES! I actually got 7 doz. cookies using a medium-sized cookie scoop that's probably equal to about 2 Tbsp. Will definitely make these often!
Outstanding cookie! Just be sure to heavily grease the cookie sheets. I lightly greased one cookie sheet and the cookies stuck, so I heavily greased the other cookie sheets with much better results.
OH MY!! This is one of the very best cookies I've ever tasted! I did use dried cranberries instead of raisins and 1/2 butter - 1/2 shortening and old fashioned oats. YUMMY!!! A+++++
Very good crunchy cookie. Has all the ingredients of my favorite cookies so who wouldn't love them. Followed the directions exactly and they came out perfect. Will be sure to make again.
These cookies are absolutely the BEST! I followed the recipe exactly except that I halved everything and the cookies are perfect. I did plump the raisins in hot water for about 15 minutes while I was assembling the other ingredients but otherwise did nothing else different. Baked them for 11 minutes and they are beautifully soft and chewy! Will definitely make again!
