This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious.

    I love oatmeal cookies! First, I like that you used allspice in place of the cinnamon. Second, I find it interesting that you use yogurt. I use applesauce in mine, which produces a chewy cookie. I can see how adding yogurt help create a tender cookie instead. I look forward to trying this. Last, when baking I found using yogurt is a great replacement for buttermilk. I'm not a fan of it, neither am I of soured milk.

      If your store can carry it then look for Bulgarian style Buttermilk...it's less sour and thicker almost like a liquid cream cheese.

      Yes, they were "good, soft and plump." I made 1/3 of a batch to try these out and even though I subbed brown sugar blend to cut the carbs and calories, they were very good. I was not sure though if you meant lemon juice or lemon extract? (I used lemon juice.) I used a standard ice cream scoop (1/8 cup measure) and the first batch baked round and plump (first photo); then I flattened the next ones down as I usually prefer (2nd photo.) There wasn't any significant difference other than a minute or two less bake time for the flatter ones, which were also soft like the plump ones. I might increase the cinnamon or allspice next time. And by the way, 1/3 recipe with cookies scaled at 1/8 cup standard ice cream scoop yielded 24 cookies; had I made the whole recipe there would have been 72!

      This is a variation

        Thumbs up for using ice cream scoops. I have 4 different sizes that I use in baking.

        Shalina, One thing about using yogurt, it leaves cookies soft and easy chewing. The kids love them and also they are getting a good supply of oatmeal. Try putting sugar frosting drizzle on top. Thanks for the comment. Chef J. Gino

            Salad. I use lemon extract but lemon juice works just as well. Glad you enjoy this recipe. J. Gino Genovesi
