These cookies turned out great and I will make them again. I used whole wheat flour instead of regular flour and craisins instead of raisins. I brought the cookies to work and my co-workers are giving me rave reviews. I baked up 1/2 of the batter and froze the rest to use another time.

Wonderful fall flavors. Yummy with a cup of tea. I made these without the nuts (because I didn't have them) and without raisins (family doesn't like them). They were great without those 2 ingredients and I'm sure would be tasty with. Will make often. The family loved them!

In a hurry, I grabbed this recipe off the internet to make to bring to my husband's boss' house. I had never tasted them before, but the recipe seemed good. What was I thinking??? Well the boss' family loved them. These cookies are excellent!!! So flavorful and spicy. Substantial and chewy. My husband and kids love them! I've already made them again for a picnic with friends. They all raved about them. I use whole wheat pastry flour and old fashioned oats since we're health conscious in our house. I also cut the sugar in half, and substituted walnuts since I didn't have pecans. Also, they are even better with a few more raisins and nuts. This is an absolute keeper. Yum!!

Outstanding cookies. Great texture and more depth of flavor than the "usual" oatmeal cookie.

Fantastic recipe! The molasses really gives the cookies a wonderful flavor and color. They are definitely the best oatmeal cookie I've ever made and I've been baking for 30 years. I followed the recipe except for using walnuts and 1 1/4 cup sugar and baked them on parchment paper for 9 minutes. They came out perfect. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Chris.

If you like gooey oatmeal pancakes...Maybe I added too much molasses, but these were so bad I coulnd't scrape them off the cookie sheet. I added more flour and they were better. The taste was awesome though.

I agree! Mine were awful ... I have never thrown away cookie batter before. I even altered the cooking time with no difference.just gooey yuckkkkk
