Very good! I used Splenda in place of sugar and reduced brown sugar by 1/4 c (personal preference to eliminate some of the sweetness). Reduced butter by 2 tablesppons and Added 1/8c extra of flour and this eliminated the spreading. Chopped the cherries for cost saving to add more of that flavor throughout cookies. Sometimes I use choc chips and sometimes I use white choc chips (the white compliment the cherries wonderfully)

These tasted good, but baked up very flat and greasy.

This is a favorite cookie in my house. They are crisp on the outside, and slightly chewy in the center. I add 1/4 whole wheat flour to the recipe to address the speading problem and add a nutty flavor. This also allows me to skip refrigeration first, to save time. Like others, I also use craisins unless it is a holiday.

I find that if you cut the amount of toffee bits by half (use 1/2 cup) there is no spreading.

These were great! I substituted whole wheat flour and the oats I used were 5 grain (Red Mill). These changes didn't make the cookies taste "too healthy" (not that the are!) - probably due to the amount of sugar and sweetness from the chips. Only wish they were a tad bit chewier, however I will play around with my next batch as I have some dough frozen.

Best cookie recipe I know. To reduce cost I use craisins instead of dried cherries but for special occasions the cherries are so good.

Very good. Read the reviews 1st then made adjustments. I thought toffee would make them too sweet so I added 1 cup chopped almonds instead. I also reduced brown sugar by 1/4 c and increased white sugar by 1/4 cup (cookies didnt spread too much. I also substituted 1/2 c shortening and 3 tbs water (or milk) for 1/2 c butter (also reduces spreading). I added 1/2 tsp almond extract for more flavor. I, too chopped the cherries for cost purposes and there is plenty of cherry throughout! Delicious!
