Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, crispy, and effortless I really beat the butter and sugar vigorously. I wonder if that did it, but these were delightful cookies: pillowy light on the inside, crisp on the outside, cinnamony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from World's Best Oatmeal Cookie My senior friends adore them, even some friends who previously denied liking oatmeal cookies. I often substitute dried blueberries or cranberries for the raisins and those are great also. Excellent cookies and healthy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I improvised! I thought I bought Quaker Oats but was mistaken. I did have the Apple/Cinnamon instant oatmeal on hand. I used four packets (2 cups) instead and wow! They are awesome!! Everyone loves them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cookie exchange cookie I needed a cookie that made large batches for a Christmas cookie exchange party. I had to make 10 dozen. I left out the raisins added cranberries pecans white chocolate chips and coconut. They were fantastic and everyone loved them. That was 6 years ago, today I still bring these cookies to the exchange party.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Husbands favorite Very good , I did change to 1/3 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. Husband likes cookies less sweet. Also used dried cranberries instead of raisins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING and versatile We make these all the time. They are so delicious. We add lots of extras, like coconut flakes, nuts, cranberries, chocolate chips, etc. I substitute half of the butter with coconut oil and reduce the sugars a little. Makes a great breakfast on the go.
