I made these a couple of days ago, and they turned out pretty good. The only reason I didn't mark them as 5-star was because they seemed to crisp and burn very, very easily. I wound up having to turn my oven down by at least 10 degrees and lower the cooking time by 2 minutes from the low time given in the recipe in order to not get crisp, dark brown edges. That being said, however, they all vanished quite quickly when I took them to work.


Although easy, not enough raisins or oatmeal. I'll add another 1/2 cup of each next time. And I found that scoops made with a small size ice cream scoop baked for exactly 15 minutes on a Silpat sheet turned out beautifully and stayed soft the next day (once cooled, I stored in a Ziploc bag)

Basic but effective! My first time baking O.R. cookies. I read some reviews first and made the following adjustments: Added a bit more oatmeal and raisins, in addition to the oil, added 1/4 cup melted/softened butter, added a little more brown sugar, reduced temp to 350, watched baking closely...removed from oven when edges got dark brown. Tops looked as if they may not be cooked through but they were. They are great!! They're very soft and chewy, with the perfect amount of sweetness. Good job on a simple recipe!
