Made a hit with Mom right away. Me? It's been a long time since I've eaten oatmeal raisin cookies so I didn't know what to expect. I used 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup Altern-brand sugar sub from WalMart. After being stored in a zip-lock bag for several days, the cookie touched my taste-buds and woke them up. Now, each day thereafter the flavor is getting stronger and the cookie tastes better. Made two batches back-to-back 1/30/10. This time I added 1/3 c finely chopped pecans + another 1/4 c raisins. Second batch used 1 1/4 c dried cherries and 1/2 c raisins + 1 tsp molasses. Dough of last batch was softer, yet baked up real good. Froze half and kept other out to eat. Like Hampstead, NH reviewer said, "I bet you can't eat just one." Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Excellent recipe! This will replace my usual oatmeal raisin recipe. It will make a nice addition to my holiday cookie assortment.

For me, the cinnamon was a bit strong and they were not quite sweet enough. I made a second batch, changed the cinnamon from 2 t, to 1 1/2 t and added an extra 1/4 of brown sugar making them an instant hit!

After making 5 different recipes for oatmeal raisin cookies, this one is the favorite. Ihave made it numerous times and everyone loves the taste and texture.

This is a wonderful recipe, I have made it many times. It is very easy to substitute the raisins in this recipe for other things. I used finely chopped pecans and chocolate chips, also walnuts and raisins are a great combo for this cookie. ** I used about 3/4 cup of each ingredient instead of just 1 cup of raisins**
