A great recipe This is an all time favorite for myself, my family and friends. I get requests for this recipe for bake sales too. March 20, 2013
Excellent Cookie!!!! Oatmeal cookies are my families favorite cookies and I had been making the traditional oatmeal cookie on a regular basis UNTIL I came across this recipe! The walnut and cranberry blends perfectly with the oatmeal in this recipe giving it a perfectly chewy cookie. I make this cookie two or three times a month and highly recommend it to an oatmeal cookie lover. December 29, 2012
Delicious! I made a batch of these to take into work and my co-workers have been raving about them all day. They were a bit difficult to try to make into a cookie because of all the oats, but well worth the effort. I used parchment paper, rather than the cooking spray and it worked great. January 30, 2012

These will become part of our cookie tray from now on. Thank you for a delicious recipe CRISCO. January 2, 2012
