Judy's Story

These can be made using the original recipe with chocolate chips, or you may substitute raisins. Often I will make and then divide my basic dough in half, and then add chocolate chips to half, raisins to half.

The cookies in the picture were made using raisins, as my husband and son like them better than the chocolate chips.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These oatmeal cookies are both delicious and satisfying. The use of chocolate chips is a great option for those who don't care for raisins... Of course, I like to add chocolate wherever I can!

all-purpose flour
1 tsp
1 c
3/4 c
brown sugar
3/4 c

1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet (I use silpat sheets on mine).

I made these tasty cookies today. Got 52 pieces! I don't use shortening in or on anything. It's either oil or butter. So I used butter. I added cinnamon like somebody had suggested. I didn't notice somebody's post saying if butter is used to omit the hot water. Maybe that's why mine spread a bit more than I expected. But non the less these were delicious & easy! Thanks Judy for posting!

Also for the person who asked about "shortening". I have been making choclate chip oatmeal cookies for many years. I always use Crisco which I don't really use for much of anything else. Makes wonderful cookies. Also love to add coconut to half my batch!
