1 1/2 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
These are the yummiest cookies ever! They taste like Mrs. Fields cookies.
I didnt add the chocolate cuz' I just wanted raisins but the chewyness of the cookie is great! My husband is picky when it comes to cookies being chewy on the inside! These are by far the best cookies Ive made and eaten in a long time! YUM YUM YUM
These cookies are way to soft, they seem almost raw and sticky
Very good cookies!! I really liked the use of only one stick of butter. As to the baking time, as with ALL cookies, baking time will be effected by the size of your cookies, what kind of cookie sheet you use and how accurate your oven is, so don't really think that should be how you rate a recipe. I used a 1 tablespoon scoop, as opposed to a spoon, and got 60 cookies. I baked some on a dark, non-stick sheet and those only took 10 minutes. I made some on a shiny, "air" cookie sheet and those took 14 minutes to get brown but with either, the taste was GREAT!! I used orange essense cranberries and natural applesause and couldn't be more pleased with the taste and texture. These don't spread much, either, so kind of "patted" the scoop down a bit to get a flatter cookie. Definitely a good recipe for someone watching their fat and fiber!!
I made these again and I measured everything perfectly and they turned out great. I suggest that if they seem a little uncooked in the middle, that you put them back in the oven for another minute or 2. So in my oven they are having to be cooked for a full 10 minutes. Also, I put twice the amount of chocolate chips. I and my kids still love them as much as the first time and I am taking them to a GRITS meeting tonight (Gals Raised In The South) so then I'll find out the true reviews.
I scoured all the reviews here, trying to figure out if these were really chewy- or cakey. Well, turns out they were cakey. I don't know how you would make them chewy- they do have applesauce in them, which to me means cakey! Besides that, they are very tasty, just not texture-wise what I was looking for. At least they're healthier than regular cookies. 1/2 cup butter for 35 cookies is great IMO. I'm thinking quick cook oats would have been better in these as well. Didn't change a thing except to add a little cinnamon, and had to cook them longer.
These were delicious. I made a few changes for a healthier version: 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup raw cane sugar, 1 cup wheat flour, 1/2 cup all purpose flour. I also replaced the butter with non-hydrogenated margarine.
I was looking for an alternative oatmeal raisin cookie containing applesauce and I'm pretty happy with this one. I omitted the chocolate chips and walnuts because I didn't have them and replace the white sugar with honey. I wound up baking them a lot longer than anticipated -- almost 18 minutes. They were slightly crunchy on the outside and wonderfully chewy on the inside.
These were amazing! I changed the recipe slightly by adding slightly less sugar, 3 egg whites, 2 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup wheat germ, and decreased the butter by 3 Tlb. Very moist and yummy.
