I haven’t posted mine yet, but I did one today with oatmeal. The maine difference from Anna’s is that I used melted butter, so mine had a more smooth appearence. It’s a delicious cookie and I’ll make it again with cold butter and I think will try it with whole wheat flour as well! And then… maybe go back to fresh eggs cookies, ahahah!

I haven’t posted mine yet either, but the three of us have come up with slightly different versions–all SO good though! Mine is the same as Anna’s, but just a tad more flour. Rita’s look SO good, I’ve seen a picture. Anna, yours look so good, too, and look just like mine! I actually like the oatmeal, I can’t believe I’m going to say this, better than the chocolate chip. There, I said it. I can’t believe I said that. (I’ve always preferred chocolate!) But I just really love this oatmeal cookie. So good. I will try to get mine posted soon!

Anna October 15, 2008 at 5:39 pm

Joanna, you are right. It’s time for me to step away.

Hey, Anna, I saw Giada make pound cake with ricotta cheese in it yesterday. I’ll bet you’d love it! ;) just teasing.

mmm! Have you had a chance to go into Cookie Lounge yet? I had one of Mark’s oatmeal cookies for breakfast…YUM!

Anna October 16, 2008 at 9:46 am

Yes! Todd & I skipped dessert at Starlite the other night and headed over to Cookie Lounge. The staff is great and the cookie I ordered (Stacy’s Sweet Dough with Belgian Chocolate) was terrific. You know, I usually prefer cookies room temperature, but there’s something fun about going out and ordering one fresh & hot out of the oven.

What s the difference between american and european style butter ??

Anna October 16, 2008 at 2:25 pm

European butter has a little more milk fat and less water.

Karen October 16, 2008 at 4:45 pm

I’m going to have to give all three recipes a try!

Karen October 21, 2008 at 2:41 pm

I doubled the recipe to make four monster cookies (about 6 ounces each). I threw in a few chocolate chips just because my daughter gets disappointed with non-chocolate desserts. I baked mine for about 23 minutes, they got just a little brown – not as dark as yours. These were delicious! Moist and cakey, they reminded me of oatmeal scones we sometimes get from our favorite bakery.

Gretchen October 28, 2008 at 5:35 pm

I made these and doubled the recipe. I LOVE these cookies – by far the best oatmeal cookies ever! I would love it if you would post the full batch recipe because I may have messed up on my flour measurements (removing the 1T got a bit messy!). I don’t know that I’ll ever make a cookie with a raw egg again!

I made these cookies over the weekend using chocolate chips instead of nuts and raisins and they were WONDERFUL. Thanks for inventing them! You’re a cookie genius!
