    These are absolutely delicious! I read that some reviewers' cookies were coming apart, so I added 1/8 c extra flour as recommended and I made sure that I rolled the cookies into tight balls before placing on cookie sheet. I also reduced salt by half, due to reviews that the cookies were too salty. Will make again and again!  -  24 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a big hit with my students. The first batch came out a little too flat, though (not like the picture). I added 1/4 cup more flour and 1/2 cup more oatmeal, and that made them nice and big (still chewy) without being too stiff. I'll certainly be making these again.  -  26 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are absolutely delicious cookies. We love cookies that stay soft, and these are perfect. I read the reviews before I made them, and used 2 tablespoons less margarine than called for. They didn't spread flat at all, and the texture is soft and chewy. I baked them on my air bake cookie sheet and it took about 16 minutes. I also chopped up the walnuts real well, and every bite has bits of walnuts in it. Delicious!!!  -  17 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
