these are the best cookies ever. i only had 1.5 sticks of butter and they were delicious and don't need that extra 1/2 stick at all. mine yielded 50 cookies.

These are very moist and soft inside. Taste great. Like others, I am placing these in Christmas goodie bags.

Incredible!!! I used whole wheat flour instead of white. I am very picky about cookies, and have to say that these are the best I've ever made....and of course I ate most of the dough before I even got around to making the cookies

I made this with regular chips and no pecans since I didnt have any on hand and it was just delicious! I cant wait to make it with the mega-morsels and pecans.

I made these cookies for my family, and handed out a small bag of them with Christmas cards to a few co-workers. Everyone loved them!! I am making another batch today! They are sure to go quick!

The Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies are DELICIOUS!!!! I've made them over 6 times and each time I've made them, they don't last long. I've even taken them to work and they keep requesting me to make more...

Great oatmeal cookie recipe! Very moist. I added about a cup of dried tart cherries that were softened in hot water for about 15 minutes. Baked them for 13 minutes. Recipe made 45 good size cookies. I will be making these again very soon!

Amazing cookie! Very easy to make! I always use 1/2 butter and 1/2 Butter-Flavored Crisco sticks as I find my cookies keep their shape better with that combo. I substituted dark chocolate chips (because I had a taste for them) and hazelnuts since I didn't have pecans. They're simply delicious! Lots of oat flavor!

These cookies are proof that God loves us and the reason why he invented milk. Oh my goodness. YUM. Yum yum yum. Wow yum. I couldn't find the big morsels so I chopped up some baking chocolate into big and small chunks. You GOTTA add the pecans, they really add a lot of flavor. Then I drizzled some melted chocolate over top of them. ZOW! BAM! SHIZAM!! This will be my forever go-to recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

I make these with 2 extra large eggs, 3 1/2 cups uncooked quick one-minute oats, 1 pkg. Ghirdelli semisweet chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped English walnuts. The extra 1/2 cup of oats makes them very chewy and also a tad bit less sweet. Several of my friends have requested the recipe. I kept playing with the recipe until I got it like I wanted. Makes 6 dozen cookies and I bake for 15 minutes at 350 in my oven.
