    My family loved these cookies. I use butter in cookies instead of shortening and also added raisins. I have a request to always have these baked and handy!  -  22 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    these were the best peanut butter cookies i've ever had. i made them twice, once i did not press them down as hard, and they were nice and chemy, and the second time i flattened alot and they were wonderfully flaky. gotta try these.. using butter makes them nice and buttery tasting..lave them!!!  -  28 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I followed the recipe exactly only added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a cup chocolate chips. They won't eat anything in my house without chocolate in it. My cookies were not crumbly and dry at all they were chewy and moist. I did use a reduced fat peanut butter I don't know if that had anything to do with it and the shortening I used was butter flavored. This recipe was a great way to "hide" the whole-wheat flour, usually you have to use a blend of white and whole-wheat flour. The peanut butter was prominent which masked the taste of the whole-wheat and the oatmeal masked it's grainy texture. I thought these cookies were plenty sweet enough. The only thing I would like to reduce is the amount of shortening by replacing it with apple sauce to make it a slightly more healthier alternative.  -  05 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
