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!

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.

A cross between a gingersnap and an oatmeal cookie.

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

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.
