Better than real butter I made oatmeal cookies one week with a real butter recipe and the cookies were not as moist and chewy gooey as I was use to my chocolate cookies being (I use a butter flavored Cristco recipe) so I looked this recipe up and made it and they were the texture and consistency I have come to expect from my homemade cookies. I didn't use the walnuts or raisins. March 13, 2013

Yummy cookies! I doubled this recipe so I could freeze them (uncooked) and cook them as we wanted them. Very easy to make recipe and so tasty. Even the dough was yummy! February 1, 2013
super good Let me just say that these cookies are not as pretty as other oatmeal raisin cookies but they are the bestvtasting. Honestly, I don't miss the butter at all. Soo good and easy. Two bowls one spoon and my oven. Lol. Made these cookies while babies asleep. They're gonna have a treat as soon as they find them. Gotta love Crisco???? January 9, 2013
