I only had salted butter on hand so I used that. I ran my oats through the food processor for a finer consistancy. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. My cookies were done at just over ten minutes, not quite eleven but not exactly ten. My husband was skeptical of the oats in his beloved chocolate chip cookies (he's a bit of a cookie purist) but he thought these were tasty, as did my kids. I'll make these again.

Yikes. I chill cookie dough before baking to help them stand up better, but these were beyond help. I've never had cookies spread so thin. At first I thought I did something wrong, then I looked closer at the reviews. With my last sheet, I made the cookies larger and they sat up a little better. Nonetheless, I thought they were too sweet and crunchy in the wrong sort of way. I recommend "Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies" from this site. especially if you chill the dough a couple hours before baking, and add an extra 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour. They're not picture-perfect either, but they stand up better than these, and aren't so sweet or toasty/crunchy.

Wow what I really enjoyed the compliments I received from making this recipe. When my boyfriends 11 year old son asked if I could make chocolate chip cookies for him. I told that I have never attempted making chocolate chip cookies before but I will try. I searched for a recipe and found this one. I followed some of the suggestions and added a lit more oats. I didn't eat any cause at the time I was following a weight loss program. The next day when I came back home from work. My boyfriends son greeted me and told me that he finished all the cookies but left two for me (he didn't know that I was on a diet). When I asked him how he enjoyed the cookes he simply answered beautiful. At his response I decided to forget about the diet and try the cookies. Didn't regret it one bit.

Based on the review that said they were too flat I added .5 c. more flour (just guessing) and I didn't bother to measure the chocolate chips, I just dumped a 12 oz. bag. I am eating one now and I am pleased, perfect mix of crunchy and chewy with lots of flavor. Oh also I deleted milk and put 3 tsp vanilla instead of 2. Also I greased my sheets just in case cos I didn't want to have to fight to get them off. Also I added about 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon at the end and that was a good addition. They baked perfectly--not too flat, easy to get off the sheet.

Delightfully sweet, chewy and crispy. Unusually and pleasantly light and airy. Maybe just a little TOO sweet for me but Hubs, I'm sure, will appreciate that and "eat them till he gets sick," a phrase he uses when he really likes something. I made no big changes - just used salted butter and omitted the walnuts. A very respectable cookie, but not extraordinary.

This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever! They are a hugh hit at my house. Thank you for such a great recipe.

These are VERY good. I do think the bigger they are the better. I used an ice cream scoop to make mine and baked them for 15-16 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!!
