    I have made this recipe several times altering different aspects each time and to me this is the best cookie recipe ever. The changes I made were 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter instead of 1 cup butter, 3 cups flour and 5 cups oatmeal, not 4 and 4, 4 teaspoons of vanila instead of 2, 3/4 cup of the candy not 1 cup and add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Also these cookies bake up best when they are large. I roll the cookie dough into a ball slightly larger than a golf ball. If you try to make smaller cookies you end up with a lot of the candy and chocolate chips on the outside of the cookie not baked inside. I always make the full recipe and freeze most of them. These are delicious fresh but tend to stale quickly. I freeze any cookies that won't be eaten in 3-4 days. They defrost quickly and taste as though they were baked that day  -  20 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were awesome! I made a half batch which was just right. I substituted peanut butter for the butter and made sure to have lots of M&M's. I used my hands to press dough into balls and baked just 10 minutes. They were chewy and stayed fresh. My new favorite!  -  24 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    WHO would actually complain to your face about your cookies??? This recipe is the best! I make this not only for my family, but for church functions, friends, etc. This makes a huge batch of delicious cookies. The texture from the oatmeal, chocolate chips, and M & M's (which is what I use) is perfect. These cookies turn out perfect every time I bake them. I attribute this to the stoneware which I use to bake cookies. I also use real butter in place of the margarine. (Cookies without REAL butter just taste blah, in my opinion.) I have had many requests for this recipe. Thanks Linda!  -  09 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
