Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were so good. Never would have thought to use chocolate covered raisin. But it was better than having to use raisins and then chocolate chips. I made four dozen of these and they were going so fast I think I should have made 6 dozen. Next time I will know better. Whenever I make cookies I put them on parchment paper so I can get the next batch in right away instead of waiting on the cookie sheets to cool all the way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The cookies were easy to make but the recipe did not state when to mix the flour in to the mixture. So I added it in the end after the oats. Cookies turned out rather nice and soft although a little bit dry but still yummy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cookie. Adds something a "little extra" to an oatmeal raisin cookie. I took them work, a big hit.
