My all-time favorite oatmeal cookie recipe. I have made this recipe several times and have way too much fun tweaking the recipe with this, that, and the other.

These just came out of the oven, so this is my first impression review: YUM! I made two substitutions: honey instead of corn syrup and chocolate chips instead of raisins. They were easy to put together and they are VERY tasty! I like all of the spices - it's just enough to give an interesting flavor, but not too overwhelming. The chocolate chips are a nice addition with the spice. I'll make these again!

AMAZING! Perfect recipe! I added 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips for my sweet tooth. I also added 1 tsp of Pumkin seasoning, and 1/8 tsp of clove because its that time of the year for me! Good fall recipe. And! I actually got the right amount of cookies which I always look for in a recipe. yummy

A cross between a gingersnap and an oatmeal cookie.

The spice in the cookies makes this recipe! I used butter instead of margarine...as butter makes everything better!

These are great. I made them for friends last Christmas because I was too poor at the time to buy individual gifts--I honestly think they were more successful than regular gifts would have been. They got rave reviews, and even people I know who have never liked oatmeal cookies in their life tried them and claimed they were the first ones they actually liked.

These cookies are outstanding. I used light stick butter (instead of margarine), whole-wheat flour, and didn't pack the brown sugar (and they are still a bit sweet!). I also used apple-pie spice in place of the cinnamon/nutmeg and added 1/4 tsp of ground cloves. Absolutely delicious! My husband is an oatmeal-raisin cookie fiend and he loves these!
