semisweet chocolate chips
Great recipe. Get the sour milk by adding 1 T. lemon juice or vinegar to 1 c. milk. I doubled the cinnamon (it really needed that), and added 1 c. butterscotch chips and 1 c. chopped walnuts as the additions (nothing else). My family loved these. They come out puffy and soft, not chewy like a granola bar.
I did not like this recipe. It was cake-like as stated by other reviewers. I wanted a chewy oatmeal cookie and all I got was a sponge-like cookie. I thought it tasted like a muffin so I tried making them in the muffin tin. It would have been okay as a muffin w/o the chocolate chips. I would not make these cookies again, we only ate a few, and the rest will probably be thrown away.
Best Oatmeal cookies ever! They were soft and chewy with great flavor. I added some left over toffee chips to the last half of the cookie dough for a little added kick. I also made it with 1 cup buuter rather than the butter flavored shortening, which I did not have on hand. I will make this one over and over for sure! It knocked my craving for oatmeal ccokies that I have been having for a couple weeks. I highly recommend this one!
Not bad...but I was expecting a more buttery crispy cookie. Make sure all know it is a more cake-like texture before making! Next time I will use my choc chip recipe and just add oats!
This recipe wasn't bad at all. I made it with my 2 year old and he likes them very much. So does the 8 month old baby. I don't mind the flavour of them, although they aren't the most flavourful cookie I've ever had. Good for babies with the soft, cake-like texture. I found them a little better if instead of dropping them, you spread them out a bit so that they bake flatter. I only added chocolate chips to mine, but I will make them again. I liked the suggestion of using flavoured instant oatmeal instead of regular oats - I will probably try that next time to see what it does to the flavour. Before you condemn this recipe, try it at least once. Especially if you have very young children.
I should have read the other reviews before I made these so I'd know that they were cake-like! I had to cook them an extra 3 minutes (about 18 minutes total). They were okay though, but probably won't make them again.
These weren't the chewy cookies my Grandmother made. They were cakey like so many other people had stated. I thought I would try them anyway. My son had a brilliant idea...Instead of chocolate chips and/or raisins...We added chocolate covered raisins. He's such a smart guy! They were great! A nice cup of freshly brewed coffee and a few of these on a plate...That's satifaction. I'll be making these over and over!
In my opinion, for an honest to goodness Oatmeal cookie,the Soft Oatmeal cookie recepie submited by bittersweet1, are truly the best on this site!! NO IT IS NOT MY RECEPIE...
