These cookies were very good, I prefer a more cake like oatmeal cookie and these were kind of flat and crispy. Next time I would use less butter as they were a little greasy, but over all very tasty

My co-worker makes these all the time and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. An easy recipe that makes a great *crispy* oatmeal cookie. Don't make if you are looking for a chewy cookie, these are not that. But boy are they good.

These cookies wouldn't form a dough without some effort. There seemed to be too dry. Next time I make them I may try adding some milk. Regardless, they tasted good. :)
