Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I used all butter instead of a combination of butter/shortening based on the other reviews. I also added dried cranberries to make them a little different. The tang was a nice contrast to the spicy/sweet. I do want to mention that I tried to make two sizes and discovered that smaller is absolutely better. They bake more evenly and are the perfect combination of soft and chewy. A little over teaspoon sized is what worked best for me (which is the size the recipe suggests). They were delicious and a huge hit at my office party! Great recipe!

Betty's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2002
This recipe was wonderful. The dough was a little oily when being formed into balls, but I added a pinch of four to my hands in order to make them less gooie. There was a small hint of saltyness to the cookies, but I was using a coarser salt, be sure to use the finest ground salt you can find and I'm sure you won't have the same problem. I also used the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar to flatten the cookie before cooking. They turned out PERFECTLY sweet, light & delightful! This one is a keeper!
