    Being creative!

    Marie Cimino from Revere, MA

    I used dried cranberries instead of the raisins and dipped them in white chocolate. They were so pretty to plate and an instant hit at our family reunion!

    Very good!

    Karly Ziemann from Mooresville, NC

    Not only were these cookies easy to make, but they were sooooooo good...especially if you're a chocolate lover! And they taste great after being refrigerated.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy!

    Meghan Shaner from Pittsburgh, PA

    These cookies are great, with or without the chocolate. I put the chocolate covered ones in the fridge so they would set faster, and they tasted great chilled, too. I will definitely make them again.

    Very tasty!

    Ceebee Barker from Trumbull, CT

    This is a great oatmeal cookie recipe, with an added treat of a dip of chocolate on the outside! They cook up moist and chewy, with just a hint of cinnamon. Just an excellent cookie!

  •  Star(s)

    Very good.

    Anna Keene from Trumbull, CT

    I made these for work,everyone loved them.

    Easy and dee-lish

    Gladys Buhan from ,

    I picked this recipe up a few weeks ago and have made 4 batches by now. They're easy to make and if you're in the mood for just a good oatmeal cookie then you can just leave them plain but the chocolate and nuts put them over the top.

    oatmeal with a twist

    Cindy Cooke from Prince George B.C. Canada

    I altered the recipe a bit. I took out the chocolate and nuts as my son attends a school with peanut sensitive children. I added coconut to the mix. What a change from the ordinary.

  •  Star(s)

    Very good!

    Jill Telford from Foothill Ranch, California

    My son absolutely loves these cookies. As one reviewer previously mentioned, they are even good without the chocolate glaze on top! I use 1/2 cup of raisins and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (the recipe mentions using 1 cup of only one of these options.) Personally, I like oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips better (Quaker Oatmeal Scotchies) but I did find these cookies to be quite good!

    Everyone keeps begging for more!

    Cathy Luke from Orangevale, CA

    I made these and brought them into work. Everyone keeps begging me to bring them again!!! The cookies are good even before you dip them in chocolate but dipping them and sprinkling them with nuts makes them seem like they came from the finest bakery! :)
