I started with a gluten free cookie mix and added nuts,chocolate chips,raisins and chocolate covered raisins. It made less due to the size of the mix. So this review isn't really for this entire recipe but it helped me make the cookies I wanted!

Add a twist

As they are these are really good cookies. I added 1/3 cup of peanut butter just before adding the oats etc. Wow. I did find that they required a little more time in the oven.

I was craving oatmeal raisin and WOW did these hit the spot. I had got a sample of another brand in the mail the day before, and eww didn't even compare. This is definitely my cookie from now on. Thanks!

I made these for my roomie yesterday because it was his day to bring something to work and I didn't want him bringing a store bought or prepackaged/boxed food. I loved these and he did too. Right out of the oven sooo awesome. I think the secret to people having problems with them breaking is lower temp level. I made these at 300F at 18 mins and they turned out beautifully just like someone else said. They spread and were soft and chewy with a nice firm bottom. I didn't add raisins since I didn't have any so I added nuts instead and used 3 different kinds of chocolate to mix it up. They were very VERY sweet so I would suggest please PLEASE drink milk with these. Quite yummy. I will be making them again this wknd!!! All my roomies LOVED them!!

Very good oatmeal cookie. My preference in cookies is either oatmeal or chocolate chip. This one is moist and very good

With A Bit of Tweaking, My Craving Was Satisfied!

by J. Julie , SC on Sep. 2007

Instead of just 14 oz of raisins, which is about 3 cups; I used 1 cup of each of the following: raisins, butterscotch and chocolate chips. One cookie satisfied my craving!

Great Cookie

by S. SHIRLEY , ANCHORAGE, AK on May. 2007

This was an easy and good oatmeal cookie to make. I doubled the recipe (as usual) and found I had to add about 1/2 cup more flour to make the cookies less gooey. I also added some toffee bits I had. That turned out great also.

Delicious Cookies!

by S. Shari , Appleton, WI on May. 2007

My neighbor introduced me to this recipe about 13 years ago. I never liked raisins in my oatmeal cookies, but I was willing to try it with the raisinets and loved them. I haven't made them for awhile, but my husband requested them again. I reminded him that he threw away the recipe when cleaning out my spice bin. But thank goodness for the Toll House Website I found it and they are just as Delicious as the first time I tried them. I also found some new recipes that I am going to try. Thank you for the wonderful website.
