I would name it "Famous Beachlover's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies". Tks for the sharing. Definitely a must try for me before this CNY. Btw what type of flour do u refer to? Can I use Crisco shortening? Can I replace shortening with unsalted butter? I have never baked any cookies in my life. Sorry for being so ignorant. Hehehe!

Thank you for your compliment:).I used All purpose bleached Pillsbury flour.Yes,you can replace butter or magerine or shortening but I still prefer butter .Butter taste better than shortening .You can play around with the recipe after you get to know it.good luck!

I just saw the picture and knew I had to bake these but I think I must have gone wrong somewhere. My cookies looked NOTHING like yours, I almost think that they need less oatmeal and more flour. They are very soft and not sticking together very well, but they sure do taste good! Thanks!

Laila:
If you add in more flour your cookies won't be soft instead it's more crunchier..Again it's depand on your preferance.If you like a bit chewy texture,add in more oatmeals not flour..Hope this help:)
