Instant vanilla pudding mix makes these oat biscuits especially soft and chewy. You will find they are a great favourite of the children.
I searched high and low for an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe to send my husband. He is deployed right now and asked me to send him some oatmeal raisin cookies since they are his favorite. I made these for him with a few minor changes....I added 2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp allspice and I used 2 1/2 cups quick oats. I can tell you that they were delicious right out of the oven, but wasn't sure if they would remain fresh. My husband called me a week and a half later telling me to stop looking for recipes....this was the best one he ever tasted! I'm sending him another box of these cookies tomorrow!!! - 26 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I substituted 1 1/2 cups applesauce for the butter and eggs and used sugar-free butterscotch pudding mix. The cookies were soft and delicious as well as fat-free! - 23 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These were very good. I added 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon because I was afraid they would be too bland. I cut the oatmeal to about 2.5 cups. Turned out great! - 05 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
