Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookies

My family loves these big old-fashioned cookies. They’re crisp, yet still chewy in the center, and the cinnamon makes them a little different from typical oatmeal cookies.

    I loved this recipe; however, I wanted more cinnamon so I added 2 tsps of cinnamon instead of 1 tsp, and since most of my family doesn't like raisins, I put raisins in half the batch. Also, next time, I'll probably add less sugar, as they were very sweet, even though I've been scarfing them up since I made them! LOL

    The first time I made these, I really enjoyed the texture but found it too sweet, so I adjusted the recipe by cutting back 1/4 cup of each type of sugar, plus a little additional cinnamon since I couldn’t really taste it before. Now they’re perfect! ????

    I used Old Fashioned Oats with the 1 1/2 cups of flour that the recipe calls for without having any issues. I wonder if there is a difference for people who live at different elevations.

    The perfect cookie! It's crisp on the outside, and chewy on the inside and has a warm cinnamon flavor. I did not need to add extra flour, but I refrigerated the dough for 15 minutes before shaping.

    Love this cookie. I substitute 1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce for 1/3 cup butter. Cuts the fat & makes a softer cookie.

    The taste itself was quite good, but they came out flat and just a little bit burnt. Reading from the other comments here, I think I should've added some extra flour.

    These were delish...but I will try with margarine or shortening next time. Mine were crisp, not at 2500 feet so maybe that was a factor...
