This is my mothers recipe and it really is awesome! They are somewhat crispy but not cakey. You can add raisins, chocolate chips or coconut to this recipe too.

I've tried quite a few oatmeal cookie recipes, this has been by far the best one...although I used only 1tsp. of cinnamon, as I don't like them to cinnamon-y,it was the perfect amount if you prefer just a hint of spice to your cookie. everyone loved them..including my kids who don't like anything that may sound as if it has something healthy in it...the 2nd time I made them I added in a package of milk chocolate chips and 2 cups of chopped walnuts. it didn't make them to dry and they still came out perfect. thanks for the recipe I'll use from now on. :)

OK,OK, I"m not a baker, nor will I ever be..but this is a keeper and a great base recipie. The first time I used shortening...they were good, but the second time I used BUTTER and added dried cranberries and bittersweet chocolate chips, and they were simply OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!

theses cookies are awesome, I've made them both with and without chocolate chips. (Of course I didn't add the cinnamon when adding chips) I used a mini ice cream scoop to drop cookies on sheets, then after 10 minutes of baking, I flattened the puffed cookies slightly with an "egg flipper", then baked for 3 more minutes this made them super chewy inside and crispy on the edges absoulutely DELICIOUS just like the bakery this way! Thanks very much for the recipe Kristen!
