I prefer my oat biscuits to be a little softer rather than crispier. This recipe also works great with pecans in place of walnuts.
WOW! My mom and I made this cookie tonight, as we were looking for a raisin oatmeal cookie that wasn't so...bland. This recipe is FABULOUS!! Soaking the raisins makes them plump and soft (and not so raisin-like) and the cinnamon adds a great kick. We also added half a bag of Hershey's Cinnamon Chips to the mix and oh my goodness. You MUST try it. I think we have a new favorite cookie. - 19 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This cookie reminded me of some my mother made called Oatmeal Rocks. They stay in a mounded shape and don't get real brown. They are softer than the ones my mother made and I like a soft cookie. I would make them again! - 19 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
