    These came out 100% perfect on the first try, and are absolutely fabulous - got about 2 dozen large-ish cookies out of it. I opted for the longer baking time at 350, for a slightly crispier cookie. I also added a little bit of cinnamon, because that's what I like. I was out of vanilla extract, so I used vanilla powder, which I whisked in with the dry ingredients to make sure it was evenly distributed. Thank you for the recipe - I'll be making it again!

    The oat to flour ratio is just too high, the next time I make it, I'll definitely cut down on the amount of oat.

    Made these last night, but I made a few changes. Instead of raisins I used craisins and instead of milk chocolate chips I used white chocolate chips. Very good recipe!!!

    These are delicious! I made it with 1 cup of cranberries, and half a cup of raisins to add a little tartness and everyone that has tasted them has absolutely loved them. Perfect balance!

    My Grandmother used to make, what she called, 'Cowboy' cookies. I used Martha's recipe to try and reproduce Grandmother's perfect family cookie. I reduced the oats to two cups, added one cup of walnuts and on top of the cookies I baked chopped maraschino cherries. This is the closest to Grandmother's cookies as I have gotten in ten years, soft in the middle, crispy on the edges and perfectly fluffy. Another excellent recipe from

    The cookies were delicious! Everyone loved them, and they turned out perfectly. I made no changes to the recipe, though I had to bake them a bit longer.

    Easy and very yummy. I added 1/2 cup granulated sugar instead of the recommended amount, and only 1/2 cup of raisins and only 1 cup chocolate chips. The cookies was sweet enough. Will make again. :)
