These cookies had a very nice taste. But the cooking time was off alittle, I thought. My cookies were very doughey in the middle and needed at least 12 mins to cook. I think I will look for a different oatmeal raisin cookie.

These were so good that my husband and I could not eat just one. I have been looking for a great oatmeal cookie recipe for years and this is it. I also added 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. ground cloves to the recipe. They were wonderful and I will be making another batch very soon. Thanks for the recipe!

We call these "crack cookies" because they are so addicting and you crave more when they're gone!
