My friends love this recipe when I make it. Rather than nuts, I use dried cranberries - they give a nice little tang to go with the richness of the cookie.

These came out great. Living at high altitude I did need to add about 1 1/2 Tbs, flour to the mix, and I did add about 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/8 tsp nutmeg. Chewy and crunchy at the same time, yu...

This makes an oatmeal cookie (which is fine) but definitely not shortbread and the reason probably is the baking soda. As far as a cookies goes no problem. Sorry.......

These were good oatmeal cookies, but a bit over buttery and definitely NOT shortbread like!

Not terribly shortbready but still very good. The only change I made was to use regular butter. They took about 10 mins to cook. Not bad at all! Thanks, Zaz!

Mine also came out oily -- especially when eaten the next day. It was not so noticible right out of the oven.

OK but nothing special. Very crumbly. I expected more flavor from the oatmeal and nuts. In a word...boring.
