    They are an amazing cookie. I now make these instead of the usual chocolate chip cookie. My families favorite cookie has now been replaced with these.

    Substituted chocolate chips for raisins and did a 1/2 tsp of Epicure Egg Nog spice instead of cinnamon and cloves. So good!

    Texture is great! Recipe is missing salt, and baking time is too short. Add 1/4 tsp of salt and add 2-4 minutes of baking time. Just a thought.

    They were delicious but my cookies turned out very flat. (Which could be baker error) They were chewy and full of flavor. The only thing that I might change next time is to drop back the amount of sugar. They were almost too sweet for my taste.

    I used dried cranberries. Taste so good
    They were so good! I didn't have brown sugar though, so i just used white sugar instead. I didn't have cinnamon or cloves laying around either, so i just added some cocoa powder for flavouring instead and worked just fine :) Will definetly bake them again!

    The BEST oatmeal cookie recipe I have used! I just used a little more Vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves. I had to bake them about 18 minutes, and they turned out perfectly. Wonderfully chewy! I will use this recipe again
