    Great recipe! Husband is a huge oatmeal raisin fan and this was his favourite recipe by far! Will be adding a few extra raisins next time (just for personal preference).

    Amazing! We substituted chocolate chips, which were delicious! I think raisins would have been excellent too - just don’t have raisin lovers in my house.

    My cookies turned out great! I didn’t have any raisins so I added chocolate chips instead. They were a hit and I’m sure they would have been great with the raisins too since I have made other recipes where I soaked the raisins in egg and vanilla and that makes them so good and so soft.

    We didn’t care for these, not much flavor to them. Perhaps more cinnamon needed.

    Sorry, not for me. Cookies were too fluffy and the technique was a bit cumbersome.

    I gave it 5 stars, but I altered it a little to make it a little healthier. I only did 1 cup of brown sugar and skipped the 1 cup white sugar, these were sweet enough. I also only did cinnamon, added 1 teaspoon salt since I used no salt butter, used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour and I did chocolate chips instead of raisins. Mine didn't spread out much so I had to push them down slightly before baking. If yours spreads out too much, you probably used melted butter and you should really use softened butter. They tasted awesome though. Made these a second time and skipped soaking the raisins in the egg mixture, I guess I didn't read the instructions. Still came out great.

    They are an amazing cookie. I now make these instead of the usual chocolate chip cookie. My families favorite cookie has now been replaced with these.

    Substituted chocolate chips for raisins and did a 1/2 tsp of Epicure Egg Nog spice instead of cinnamon and cloves. So good!

    Texture is great! Recipe is missing salt, and baking time is too short. Add 1/4 tsp of salt and add 2-4 minutes of baking time. Just a thought.

    They were delicious but my cookies turned out very flat. (Which could be baker error) They were chewy and full of flavor. The only thing that I might change next time is to drop back the amount of sugar. They were almost too sweet for my taste.

    They were so good! I didn't have brown sugar though, so i just used white sugar instead. I didn't have cinnamon or cloves laying around either, so i just added some cocoa powder for flavouring instead and worked just fine :) Will definetly bake them again!

    The BEST oatmeal cookie recipe I have used! I just used a little more Vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves. I had to bake them about 18 minutes, and they turned out perfectly. Wonderfully chewy! I will use this recipe again
