Rated 5 out of 5 by from These cookies are to die for!!! These cookies are to die for!!! One tip is to use the Quaker Oats since they make this recipe even better so it is best to use their oats over other brands since they work so well in the recipe!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much butter! Way too much butter given only 1-1/2 cups of AP flour. I even added more flour, but couldn't get the cookies to raise. I got flat, oily cookies. Tossed them all. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful after-school snacks Thank heavens cookies are easy to make -- my grandchildren want me to make these every day. One change, they don't like raisins so I use dried cranberries and sometimes add walnuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and yummy While the cookies are great, I love the bars. I use a bit less sugar, a bit more cinnamon and oatmeal. Then I ice with strands of a thin very vanilla icing after cutting.
