I followed the recipe exactly except I used dried cranberries instead of raisins! They turned out absolutely delicious.

Absolutely delicious! I replaced the chocolate chips for M&Ms, which added cheerful colors and a sweet taste to the cookies. Very easy, chewy, and a delight to make. I've made them twice and found that I preferred them when I added 1/4 cup of oats and cut back 1/4 tsp on the vanilla.

These cookies are great. I added an extra half cup of oatmeal and 3/4 cup of chopped macadamia nuts. That is all i had of the nuts. One full cup of the macadamias i bet would be even better.

To improve, use less sugar, and add more butter if you want these to sing! Make it a cup and a half, and the cookies will be more like "Tates" famous cookies. Also try adding 1/4 cup of shredded coconut and half a cup of coarsely chopped walnuts. Yum!

I added 1 Tsp of Nutmeg and additional 1/4C of oats, also used 1C of BOTH crasins and rasins. I also used two different types of chocolate chips (1c dark chocolate chips and 3/4 C milk chocolate)... They are amazing! The only trouble is now I can't keep my hands out of the cookie jar! :)

AMAZING. I actually leave out the raisins and add an extra handful or two of chocolate chips. To die for.
