These are a winner. Made these super easy cookies and my wife loved them. These Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies will be a favorite in any home. February 18, 2013
Just for US These cookies tasted good and were easy to make. My usual recipe (also Crisco) results in a denser cookie that stands higher and is chewy, chocolatey deliciousness. Haven't had a chance to play with this recipe yet. If I try it again, I'd likely skip the milk and/or add a little more flour. I made this recipe on a week night -- just for us. If I were gifting the cookies, or taking them to share at an event, I would use the other recipe. February 5, 2013
Only Okay I prefer my own recipe. But, this is a good recipe if you need a regular cookie. January 23, 2013
