    wasn't crazy about them

    ilene Rosenthal from ocean city, NJ

    I don't know, maybe it's me, since they have such good reviews, but I didn't think these were that good. I made them to bring to a work holiday party, and wish I'd had the time/ingredients to make something else. They were okay, but to me the taste was disappointing.

    Good Stuff!

    Joy from Denton, TX

    I made these cookies for my family and friends and we thoroughly enjoyed them, especially me. I did not have any cranberries so I substituted raisins, but they still turned out great. I have also made them before minus the Jingles, substitute chocolate chips, and they were still a hit. I will use this recipe countless times more, I’m sure, and many friends have even requested it.

    cookie exchange tea party

    Lillian Herndon from Baltimore, MD

    All who attend the cookie exchange tea are asked to bring a sample of their cookies along with copies of the recipe. Your oatmeal cookies were a hit at the party. Everyone wanted the recipe.

    Lovely treat

    Beatrix Haughton from London

    Oh what wonderful biscuits served with a spot of hot spiced tea or equally lovely served with cinnamon coffee and cream. Family absolutely adored them! Piping hot right out of the oven they simply vanished

    Marylee from Lady Lake, Fl

    I needed something fast and tasty. I remembered I had copied this recipe down, and I had everything on hand...took to a "pot luck supper" and came home with an empty dish and requests for the recipe! Will definately make again! Plan to send some to my son for Christmas!
