packed brown sugar
quick cooking oats
1 3/4 cups
all-purpose flour, or more if needed
I got 48 cookies out of this, as the recipe said. They spread pretty well and cooked in about 10 minutes.
Overall good recipe - I would describe these as a plain oat-oatmeal cookie, no raisins, cinnamon, molasses. It was nice for a change and they baked up well, turning golden within the 8-10 minute baking time. I ended up adding some milk chocolate chips to the batter. My family enjoyed these cookies.
Just made these cookies and is a keeper!!! Didn't have shortening so used magerine,I always double vanilla, and added cinnamon. The texture is perfect, spread is perfect, cookies are perfect. Thank you!
The cookies were GREAT! I had been looking for a very chewy oatmeal cookie and looks like I found it. Will be making more soon...
I changed it up a bit by adding cranberries instead of raisins and used rolled oats instead of quick oats. They give better consistency.......basically.......loved it!!!!
I had a day off from work and came across this recipe. It's pretty awesome easy to do and very quick! It makes a ton of cookies as well. I'm just afraid that I won't have any left for my boyfriend when he gets home from work asking "what did you do today?"... OH I just ate cookies! LOL! Love this recipe!
Very good. A good combination of soft and chewy an crispy. When I tasted the batter it was a bit salty, so next time I might add just a touch less salt, or mix it longer. I also used butter because I didn't have shortening. Overall, pretty good.
