    I am just sure this recipe is missing the EGGS. Did anyone see this actually made on the show? I admit I haven't made it yet....I thought I would check the comments first. Obviously an omisson in the recipe. I wonder who proofreads? This is so similar to the recipe on the Quaker Oat box for Oatmeal cookies....1/3 the butter and 1 C less oatmeal and a couple other small differences. Check inside the Quaker box lid. One of my favorite. MY mother made them over 50 yrs ago! Happy cookies!!

    I made these substituting chopped dates for the raisins. They came out great. Easy to make and I usually have these ingredients on hand for a last minute treat.

    Made these today, and what a disappointment! Dry, crumbly and not very flavorful. I am sad that I wasted almost a pound of butter on cookies even my kids won't eat. Not worth the effort at all.

    I'm not sure why so many comments complained that theirs crumbled up, inedible. Mine came out perfect, just like the photo. I did pack the oats in, and I let them cool overnight. They firmed up beautifully. The only thing I would change is more filling. I used cranberry, yum!

    I made these last night. Easy and delicious - I added raisins, cranberries, dreid apricots and mixed them all in! I love the persons comments to try apple butter. These are delicious.

    Fabulous! These are super as lunch box treats for my kids. I make a few batches, cut, wrap individually, freeze, and grab as I need them. Last well for ages this way. We also like to use apricot, sometimes cranberry/raisin mix, and cherries. Another thing we've done is to replace some of the butter with canola oil (lately doing 1c canola oil, 1/2c butter) and they are still really tasty. Noone in my family noticed the substitutions. Fabulous recipe, and so versatile!

    Made this several times. Here is how I did it. Very happy with the results. Perfect to take camping. Used whole wheat flour. Used store bought organic apple butter for filling. Beat an egg and added it after the butter. Made it in muffin tins and still got 24 perfect servings. 2 tbsp oatmeal mix pressed down. 1/2 tbsp filling. 2 tbsp oatmeal mix on top, press it down. bake 30-35 minutes (until golden brown). Next time I am going to add some cinnamon to the oatmeal mix.

    Ours came out SOOOO good! We messed up though, we used 1 cup of brown sugar instead of 1/2 cup. We used roasted unsalted sunflower seeds instead of pecans. We also made another sub. dried cherry's and currents for the filling instead of raisins. Ours came out perfect. It did crumble more than I thought it would. However thats because we didn't wait for it to cool all the way. It tasted so good still warm out of the oven. They did firm up a little after they cooled off all the way.
