This is a deliciously soft and chewy oatmeal raisin biscuit. Easy to make and good to have around as a snack.
I love this recipe! I'm not a good cookie baker and i've never made oatmeal raisin cookies but these turned out wonderfully! I used brown sugar instead of white and margerine instead of shortning. I also added an extra 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg as suggested by other reviews. They are so soft which is such a nice change from hard cookies! thanks so much! - 12 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Although these cookies had a good taste, these are not "chewy" cookies as described. They were cakey, which I find unappealing in a cookie. If you are looking for a chewy cookie, pass this one by and try another. - 04 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I just finished making these cookies, and I must say... they were delicious. I used butter instead of just shortening, and I ran out of white sugar, so I used brownulated sugar, and couldn't tell difference.Will definitely make again. - 27 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
