I didnt read the directions completely the first time I made them and I used self-rising flour instead of all-purpose. I brought them to work and everyone LOVED them. The second time I made them...

This is the same recipe that I use. It is my favorite oatmeal cookie. I wouldn't even make oatmeal cookies if I couldn't find my recipe.

Perfect!! Moist and yummy. I have a step daughter deployed overseas and her whole troop loves these cookies.

This really is the best oatmeal cookie recipe. They always come out perfect!

This recipe is shy of what I am looking for. I doesnt seem oatmeally enough cause its a little toooo cakey. 400 is way too high my bottoms were burnt.

this recipe makes hard and flat cookies. they taste like diet cookies

I reduce the clove by half and still had a funny taste in my mouth after. If you don't like clove, this is not the recipe for you.
