MRS.CLAUS' FAVORITE OATMEAL COOKIES

by N. NICOLE , ROSELLE, NJ on Dec. 2008

I MADE THESE LAST YEAR FOR CHRISTMAS AND LOST THE RECIPE. COULDN'T REMEMBER WHERE I FOUND THIS RECIPE. I LOVE THE THIS RECIPE AND THE NAME TOO. I WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING, ONLY MAYBE THE JINGLES...I USED MINI CHOCOLATE CHIPS ONE BAG. MAYBE THEY SHOULD ADVERTISE THIS RECIPE ON THEIR BAG OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS!!!!!

wasn't crazy about them

by i. ilene , ocean city, NJ on Dec. 2006

I don't know, maybe it's me, since they have such good reviews, but I didn't think these were that good. I made them to bring to a work holiday party, and wish I'd had the time/ingredients to make something else. They were okay, but to me the taste was disappointing.

Good Stuff!

by J. , Denton, TX on Dec. 2005

I made these cookies for my family and friends and we thoroughly enjoyed them, especially me. I did not have any cranberries so I substituted raisins, but they still turned out great. I have also made them before minus the Jingles, substitute chocolate chips, and they were still a hit. I will use this recipe countless times more, I’m sure, and many friends have even requested it.

by L. Lillian , Baltimore, MD on Dec. 2005

All who attend the cookie exchange tea are asked to bring a sample of their cookies along with copies of the recipe. Your oatmeal cookies were a hit at the party. Everyone wanted the recipe.

Lovely treat

by B. Beatrix , London on Dec. 2005

Oh what wonderful biscuits served with a spot of hot spiced tea or equally lovely served with cinnamon coffee and cream. Family absolutely adored them! Piping hot right out of the oven they simply vanished

a keeper!!!

by M. , Lady Lake, Fl on Nov. 2005

I needed something fast and tasty. I remembered I had copied this recipe down, and I had everything on hand...took to a "pot luck supper" and came home with an empty dish and requests for the recipe! Will definately make again! Plan to send some to my son for Christmas!
