How to Control Web Cookies and Boost Online Privacy

Dont like being tracked on the web? The right browser settings can help.

We respect yourprivacy. All email addresses you provide will be used just for sending this story.

Odds are that your computers browser is full of cookies, tiny files left behind as you go from website to website. Mine is. My personal machine has close to 5,000 cookies.

Some of the web cookies on your machine are used by big advertising companies looking to gather and store information about youwhat you shop for, which sites you visit, and so on. That can feel like a violation of your privacy and make you think you should dive in and delete them all.

But other cookies contain important information that makes your web experiences smoother. Which is why you really shouldntdive in and delete them all.

Privacy experts have been talking about cookies for years, but the subject remains confusing. It doesnt have to be. Managing cookies is a privacy maintenance task that everyone should understand, the digital equivalent of regularly changing your smoke detector batteries.

And Dec. 4, National Cookie Daywhich celebrates the baked kind, not the digital onesis a great time to take care of business. Its as easy as baking some Toll House chocolate chip treats, pouring yourself a glass of milk, and opening your browser preferences.

Note that managing cookies is just one component of protecting your privacy.

Companies may use non-cookie technologies to track you across websites, and clearingcookieswont address that, says Justin Brookman, privacy director for Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization division ofConsumer Reports. Butcookiesare still the most common way companies track you on the web.

Use the right settings and you can enhance your privacy while making sure websites still work the way they should.

A cookie is a little bit of data stored on your computer by a website thats related to your activity on the site, explains Selena Deckelmann, a director of engineering for the Firefox browser at Mozilla.

Cookies are simple files, notprograms, and they dont contain malware or anything that can damage your computer. Theyre also tinymany are just 3 to 10 kilobytesso theyre not occupying a significant amount of space on your hard drive.

Theyre small but powerful.Deckelmann was shopping for a sink recently. She went to a hardware retailers website, browsed various models, and then left to visit more sites. And she immediately started seeing ads for faucets, vanities, and other sink-related items.

Cookies help explain how that happened. A company can drop cookies across the web and get a decent sample of your browsing activity, says Casey Oppenheim, co-founder of the web security firm Disconnect.

When Deckelmann visited the retailers website, it deposited a number of cookies on her computer, in a location determined by her browser. Some of those cookiescalled first-party cookiescame from the domain that she saw in the URL at the top of the browser window, such as or m. (Well discuss third-party cookies below.)

The first-party cookies left by the retailer carried information such as an indication that she had logged in successfully. They may have recorded her location (to help the website display the right language and currency) and what she placed in her shopping cart.

But how does the website use that information?

Each time you go to a webpage, your browser sends out a request for the files needed to display the page. And along with that request goes a copy of every cookie that originated with that domain. The browser sends Amazon.com the cookies left by Amazon.com, while BestBuy.com gets the cookies left by BestBuy.com, and so on.

Lots of those cookies expire when you close the browser, but not all of them.

When Deckelmann came back to the site the next day or the next week, the browser sent back copies of the remaining cookies. Thats how the site seemed to know who she was, and what shed done during her last visit.

Without first-party cookies, websites would seem a lot stupider.

Weve only been talking about first-party cookies. But during Deckelmanns visit to the retail website, other companies may have deposited their own, third-party cookies.

How did that happen? Well, a webpage is made up of many files and little bits of code. Many of those bits and pieces come from the retailer itself. But other elements, such as ads and social media buttons, come from other companies.

A huge percentage of all the ads you see online are handled by DoubleClick, which is owned by Google, so lets use that company as an example. When you see an ad embedded in a webpage, theres a good chance its coming from the domain . And the advertisement may carry cookies along for the ride.

Next time you go to any site with elements originating on DoubleClick.net, your browser sends DoubleClick a copy of all its cookies. If you visit many websites that contain chunks of DoubleClick content, your browser supplies the company with a steady stream of cookies.

And remember, DoubleClick.net is just one example of the many domains that supply elements to webpages and leave cookies on users machines.

Thats why the entire internet seemed to know instantly that Deckelmann had been shopping for sinks.

As Oppenheim says, From a consumer perspective, theres a big difference between first-party cookies and third-party cookies.

One way to do that is by browsing in Private mode (for Safari or Firefox) or Incognito (for Chrome). Browsing this way doesnt keep your internet service provider or a web server from knowing what youre doing online, but it does keep cookies from working. And that can be illuminating.

Its showing you what its like to live in a world without cookies, Deckelmann says.

For instance, if you normally stay logged into Facebook, youll have to log in again if you visit using a Private window.

If I clear my cookies, it screws up my workflow, says Oppenheim. Having to sign in every time is a hassle.

Full disclosure: uses cookies, though the site doesnt accept advertising. You can learn more in theConsumer Reportsprivacy policy.

You may not mind third-party cookies. After all, you might like seeing ads for items youve been shopping for.

But, if you want to, you can block just third-party cookies and let through first-party cookies.That will reduce the number of companies collecting and storing information about you.

Deckelmann has a three-pronged plan for accomplishing this, just by using your browser settings. (Ad-blocking web extensionsalso accomplish this, along with other tasks; thats a discussion for another day.)

The first step is to make sure you have a record of all the passwords for sites that require a login. (Apassword managercan help with that.) Once youve done that, Deckelmann suggests going ahead and clearing all your cookies, as outlined below. Trying to delete cookies one at a time would take forever, and even experts cant tell with any certainty what each individual cookie does.

Its like your purse, Deckelmann says. Periodically you need to dump that thing out and start fresh.

The trade-off: Your web surfing experience will be a little choppy for the next few days as you re-enter passwords and update other settings.

Heres how to clear cookies in three popular browsers.

Chrome:Under the Chrome tab at the top left of your screen, click Clear browsing data. Check the box: Cookies and other site data. Then click the bar at the bottom right of the window that says Clear browsing data.

Firefox:Under the Firefox tab at the upper left of your screen, go to Preferences Privacy & Security Show Cookies Remove All.

Safari:Under the Safari tab at the upper right of your screen, go to Preferences Privacy Manage Website Data Remove All.

The final step is to instruct your browser to allow first-party cookies while blocking third-party cookies.

Chrome:Go to Preferences Privacy Content settings. Open the Cookies tab and select Block third-party cookies.

Firefox:Go to Preferences Privacy History. The default setting is Remember history. Change it to Use custom settings for history to reveal your cookies options.

For third-party cookies, you have three options: Always, Never, and From visited.

Safari:Apples browser features the same cookie compromiseAllow [cookies] from websites I visitwhich can be found at Preferences Privacy.

We respect yourprivacy. All email addresses you provide will be used just for sending this story.

Oops, we messed up. Try again later

Shopping links are provided by eBay Commerce Network and Amazon, which makes it easy to find the right product from a variety of online retailers. Clicking any of the links will take you to the retailers website to shop for this product. Please note that Consumer Reports collects fees from both eBay Commerce Network and Amazon for referring users. We use 100% of these fees to fund our testing programs.

I believe that technology has the power to change our livesfor better or for worse. Thats why Ive spent my life reporting and writing about it for outlets of all sorts, from newspapers (such as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times) to magazines (Popular Mechanics and Rolling Stone) and even my own books (Newtons Football and Claptons Guitar). For me, theres no better way to spend a day than talking to a bunch of experts about an important subject and then writing a story thatll help others be smarter and better informed.

Enable Cookies in Internet Explorer

This guide will step you through the process of enabling Cookies in Internet Explorer.

InInternet Explorer 6, 7 or 8, Tools is a menu at the top of the screen:

InInternet Explorer 9 and higher, Tools is found by clicking the gear icon on the right-hand side of the browser window:

InInternet Explorer 6, 7 or 8, Internet Options is the bottom menu item:

InInternet Explorer 9 and higher, Internet Options is the second-last option:

The window which has just appeared will have a tab labledPrivacy; please click it:

There is more than one setting in Internet Explorer which can block or disable cookies and cause some issues with websites.

In the default settings for Privacy and Cookies, there is a slider control at the top of the Privacy window which can be dragged up or down to select varying levels of Cookie security.

If you see this sliding bar on the left, you can drag it up and down and note the description on the right-hand side change to describe the level of security provided.

It ranges fromBlock All CookiestoAccept All Cookies. The default setting isMedium, which provides a balance of being permissive enough with Cookies to have a good experience on the internet while still blocking certain types of Cookies which could leak private information about you.

If you see the following message:Custom- Advanced or imported settings (shown in the next screenshot), it means that custom settings have been used instead of just dragging to select a custom privacy level.

Generally speaking, if youre having problems using websites because your Cookie settings have been changed, the easiest way to fix this is simply by resetting to Internet Explorers default Privacy/Cookies setting.

This addresses the situation whether youve dragged your Privacy Settings slider up or down, or clickedAdvancedand created your own custom settings. This is the easiest way to get them back to baseline.

This is done by clicking the button markedDefault.

Of course, dont forget to press theOKbutton at the bottom of the window to accept the settings change.

This should fix most or all of your Cookies problems.

If you need or want to exercise fine grained control over your cookies policy – for example allowing or blocking Third Party Cookies – click theAdvancedbutton and override the automatic cookie handling by choosing your own settings.

Manage and Delete Cookies in Internet Explorer 11

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today Im going to show you how to adjust the Cookie settings Internet Explorer 11.

The first thing were going to do is open the Internet Options

There are two ways to do this. First is by going to Tools and then selecting Internet Options.

The second way to access the Internet Options is by opening the start menu and going to the Control Panel

Click Network and Internet, then click Internet Options.

We have a few different tabs, but we are going to click on the Privacy tab.

Cookies are very important because some websites wont allow you to access them if you are blocking all cookies, and some will not function properly, keep this in mind if you choose Block All Cookies. Cookies are very useful because they remember your details. For example, if you use internet banking and you visit your bank, the cookies will remember that you have visited the site and allow you easy access. If you have cookies blocked then you will have to enter security details every time. Cookies also remember your preferences in order to provide you with a more bespoke service. If you have particular favourites, or you have the weather for your location, cookies will remember this and show things that are relative to you.

The other alternative is to Accept All Cookies, which allows you to be tracked by everything

Some of these may be malicious, tracking your information or recording things. Its good to have a balance. You need some cookies, but it is also good to retain some of your privacy. If you allow all cookies you are basically allowing everyone to see everything you look at and everything you do.

I would suggest, middle of the range, Medium-High

Medium-High says it blocks third-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy. This tells you that you are allowing cookies that have a privacy policy, so they have some organization and are more trustworthy because theyve made the effort to have a privacy policy. If a cookie has no privacy policy then the cookie can be used for anything and your information could be sold and shared without your knowledge. This also says that they block first-party cookies that save information that can be used to contact you without your implicit consent. This means, if a cookie saves information about you and they want to contact you, they will have to ask you. If you do not select this and all cookies are allowed, people can contact you without your consent and you can receive emails from advertisers and start to get more spam. Having a Medium-High, or even High blockage would work to your advantage.

Find the setting thats good for you

Test it out on Medium, go back and try the website. If you find it doesnt work for you then change it and see how you feel. Once youve selected the setting you want go down and click Apply.

Now click OK and you can exit the menu

Vegan Old-Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Annndcue the drooling. These cookies need to come with a warning. Like, I seriously cant get over how incredibly delicious they turned out. I have so many fails in my kitchen when testing recipes. So many. But sometimes I have a successful recipe that even blows my own mind. Haha! These cookies are a perfect example. TheseVegan Old-Fashioned Ice Oatmeal Cookiestotally blew us all away at my house. They are that good.

I did the icing a couple of different ways. The full icing is of course the classic look of the Iced Oatmeal Cookies we ate as kids from the Mothers brand or similar, but I have to say, the drizzle effect looks so much more pretty to me!

My weakness is cookies. I dont struggle with wanting to gorge myself with things like candy or ice cream.

But. Cookies. I was nicknamed the cookie monster at one of my old jobs years ago because I ate them daily and apparently was in somewhat of a trance while I ate them, lol! I think thats why one of my specialties has always been at creating cookie recipes because I am so passionate about eating them! Now, that made me laugh out loud just now. Even one of my readers, Liz, told me this past week that she never was a big lover of cookies until my blog and now makes them all the time! Sorry toturn you into a cookie monstertoo, Liz 🙂

My point is that these cookies are so darn nostalgic and trance-worthy, hahaha! I exercise and eat really healthy for my meals, so I will happily enjoy my cookies. No shame in my cookie game.

These cookies are the result of a little survey I took on myFacebook pageasking which recipe to post next. It was between theseIced Oatmeal Cookies, Strawberry Shortcake and Gluten-Free Chocolate Waffles.

My goodness, you all mean business with wanting the oatmeal cookies, lol. There was 300 comments and it took me forever to count them all and since several comments didnt specify an exact choice, I obviously couldnt count those. So, while the waffles got some votes and the Strawberry Shortcake got an admirable71 votes, the cookies got over 200so I just stopped counting them when they were the clear winner. Lol. I had to get back in my kitchen.

Since there was such a high demand for these cookies and a couple of requests regarding allergies, I worked endlessly in my kitchen creating2 different versions and 4 different icing choicesso that everybody could make these. Am I good to you all or what? 🙂

Guys, the originals are made with white flour, butter, lots of sugar and the store versions are of course full of processed ingredients. My version is SO much easier, so much healthier and yet, taste so similar?! Maybe they are magic cookies?

I have to admit though, it took a few trials. My first couple of attempts were way too puffy and looked and tasted nothing like the classic ones. As you know, when I create a classic recipe on my blog, especially desserts, Im trying to make it taste like the original as possible. Because, after all, its that classic taste we all loved growing up and making a version that looks and tastes nothing like the original is obviously pointless…or it is entirely not deserving of the same cookie title as the classic.

I ultimately had success doing a modified version of myOatmeal Raisin Cookieson the blog.

These amazingly nostalgicVegan Gluten-Free Old-Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookiesrequire JUST 6 main ingredients for the cookie base and 2 for the icing, so 8 total (+salt):

I kind of still cant believe how much they look and taste like the original but made with completely different ingredients! I swear, these are every bit as delicious and so much less guilt eating them. Its been so many years since Ive had one of the classics, so I cant say if they taste identical, but they are so damn good and close that it doesnt really matter. They are just delicious!

These bake up and spread round and flat just like the originals and are wonderfully chewy like the original. The cashew butter, oats and rice flour really give them that awesome chew.

I always make my own cashew butter at home because it is so easy and cheaper. Plus, its so hard to find store versions that dont have added oil. You do need a strong food processor though in order for it to work properly. I use my food processor on a near daily basis, so it is an incredible investment. I use it for dips, hummus, all nut butters, sauces, you name it.Here is the one I love!

These beauties are soft, with an ever-so-slightly crispy edge and a decadent, rich and chewy center. Oh gosh. Im salivating just typing that out.

Now, guess what? Before any of you start panicking that there is cashew butter and you or your kids are allergic to nuts, I also tested and created anut-free low-fat version.

TheseLow-Fat Iced Oatmeal Cookiesare truly delicious as well, so make these if you are needing to watch the fat or nuts! But, if you are not watching your fat intake, then please, please make this version, as they taste incredibly richer and yes, are better, obviously, than the low-fat version! They are so good, I just cant stop going on about them, lol.

Enjoy and be sure to leave feedback below after you make them! Be sure to tag me on Instagram and dont forget my hashtagthevegan8so I SEE them!

Now, step into my kitchen and see me make these yummy cookies!

The absolutely most delicious OLD-FASHIONED ICED OATMEAL COOKIES made vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and just 8 EASY ingredients! Nostalgia at its best! Dairy-free cookies that will blow away you and your guests! Made with oats, cashew butter and maple syrup.

1 1/2 cups (150g) old-fashioned GF rolled oats, NOT quick oats

6 tablespoons (60g) white rice flour, do not use brown, they will crumble

Classic white full icing (This will yield the best most classic result and is enough to fully frost 18 cookies. For a lower sugar option, only do half the recipe for the drizzle effect)

2 tablespoons (30g) canned lite coconut milk, can shaken well first

1 cup + 2 tablespoons (140g) powdered sugar, sifted if it is lumpy

Please understand that other milks tested…soy, almond, rice ALL made a thinner, less white frosting that did not dry as well and is NOT recommended. Something magical about coconut milk that works best.

Low-fat AND coconut-free icing (this was my favorite for the drizzle effect & the one I used in the photos. It has a delicious cream cheese flavor)

4 teaspoons (20g) soy or almond dairy-free yogurt

1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon (70g) powdered sugar

Unrefined sugar AND nut-free icing (this obviously has a coconut flavor and is more yellow than white and is for drizzle only)

1 1/2 tablespoons (30g) maple syrup, room temp

1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons non-dairy milk, I used coconut

Unrefined sugar AND coconut-free icing (my least favorite for these cookies and I ONLY recommend the drizzle effect for this version)

2 tablespoons (40g) pure maple syrup

4 tablespoons (64g) raw cashew butter

2 teaspoons any milk to thin, I used coconut

NOTE: I make my own cashew butter for all of my recipes. It is very easy and works so well in my recipes. You do need a good quality food processor.Hereis the one I use for a ton of my recipes! Just add 2 cups raw, unsalted cashews to a food processor and process for 5-10 minutes. You will need to scrape the sides and break up chunks a few times, but KEEP GOING and processing until it is very smooth and runny like a drippy almond butter. It should be soft almost like a buttercream frosting, not super thick and stiff. If it runs off a spoon easily, then it is ready. Let it cool before using in the cookies.

Preheat the oven to 350F and line 2 large sheet pans with parchment paper.

To a large bowl, add the oats, white rice flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt and stir well.

Pour the maple syrup and cashew butter over the dry ingredients and stir for a couple of minutes until it all comes together into a very thick and sticky batter.

Drop by large spoonfuls (about 2 tablespoons) onto the pan, placing 9 on each sheet, spaced about 2 inches apart as they will spread a lot. With damp fingers (dipped in water), press the cookies down to about 1/4 inch thick and form a round shape with your fingers in a patting motion and round out the edges. The batter will be way too sticky to roll into balls. Please refer to my video above for a visual. This is an important step for how the cookies bake up beautifully and round and flat.

Bake one pan at a time on the center rack for 12 minutes. The cookies should have spread nicely and have a beautiful crackle and light golden top. Cool for 5 minutes on the pan and then carefully transfer them to a cooling rack with a spatula. Do not use your hands to pull them off. They will firm up as they cool, so let them cool!

For the classic icing (this was my favorite), add the powdered sugar and milk to a small bowl and whisk until completely smooth. It will seem too dry at first but keep whisking and it will come together. Do not be tempted to add more milk! It should become thick and white. Ice the cookies quickly as it does start to dry out fairly quickly. Use a spoon to dollop each cookie and spread out with the back of the spoon. Or, for a less sugar topping, add the icing to a baggie, cut a small tip off the corner and drizzle it on. FYI: I used the yogurt version for the drizzle. Please place the cookies in the fridge to allow the icing to set quickly and then you can either store them at room temp or fridge. I place a piece of parchment paper in between each layer of cookies so the icing doesnt stick to the other cookies.

If using the coconut butter version, melt it gently (if its hard) in the microwave for 30 secs or until warm and soft and is liquidy. Add the syrup, milk and vanilla and mix with a fork until totally smooth and a thick pudding consistency has formed. Add to a baggie and trim off a small corner and drizzle on the cookies. Place in the fridge to set.

If using the cashew butter icing version, add the ingredients to a small bowl and mix with a fork until smooth. Add to a baggie and trim off a small corner and drizzle on the cookies. Place in the fridge to set. This will not harden as well as the powdered sugar version and it wasnt my favorite. The cashew flavor is strong, which is why I only recommend drizzling, not completely frosting.

Vegan Caesar Smashed Chickpea Sandwich

Cue the drooling AND all the nostalgic after school cookie in the car snack memories right along with it!! Omg you nailed it. Of course Im not surprised, but they look absolutely perfect from the texture to the icing to the little bits of oatmeal cookie peaking through the sweet white tops. I havent had the store-bought kind in forever, but Im actually pretty positive yours would blow the original ones right away with that lovely golden color and so many favorite ingredients too! I cannot believe how many options you have here, your house must be full of cookies right about now (be right there haha!). So two cookie version and 4 icing version…that means I will need to make approximately 8 batches to fully experience the iced oatmeal magic then! Cant wait to see what you have coming with the low-fat version, but my diet/fat intake always has room for cashew butter and cookies–I make sure of that 🙂

I seriously DIED laughing at your comment about my house being full of cookies and you coming over, hahaha! Yes, Ive made SO many and eaten so many, lol. But, all in the name of testing of course 😉 Its a dirty cookie job, but somebodys got to do it, LOL! Yes, 8 batches, hahaha, you are killing me today!

Yum! I have now made about 5 of your recipes and they have all been amazing so I cant wait to also try these! Do you have a food processor youd recommend to make nut butter?

So sweet and wonderful to hear Marie! I use this one and love it!

These beauties are soft, with an ever-so-slightly crispy edge and a decadent, rich and chewy center. Oh gosh. Im salivating just typing that out. When I read your cookie description I smiled big time and nodded my head in agreement. It makes me feel such a kinship to read such comments from other foodies. (Though I must say Im not so specific as to be a cookie monster, more a general baked goods monster!) This past Saturday I returned from a monthlong trip to England (we usually go every three years to visit my husbands side of the family) and while it was great and awe-inspiring to tour places like Westminster Abbey, St. Pauls Cathedral and Buckingham Palace, it was trying all the different vegan food options while we were out and about (lovingly researched for me by my father-in-law and sister-in-law via Happy Cows web site) that truly got me excited. (In case youre curious and youre ever in England, the best meal I had was at 222 Veggie Vegan in London: Seitan Stroganoff and Chocolate Gateau with a vanilla dessert drizzle (basically vegan-friendly warm custard)…. Im salivating just thinking about it! I would love to try your latest creation but perhaps I should wait awhile since I gained almost five pounds while on holiday! Yikes, but so worth it! 🙂

Thank you so much for your kind words Victoria and Im sorry I missed this comment before! Your trip to England sounds like it was so amazing! Wow!

These cookies are absolutely delicious and so easy to make! I have not had iced oatmeal cookies in a very long time and this recipe is spot on. The texture is amazing and even with the icing, they are not overly sweet. I very much appreciated the video to see how you shaped them prior to baking. Thank you for so many great recipes!!

Thank you so much for the amazing review Angela! So happy to hear you loved them so much!

Do you think I can use almond flour instead of rice flour?

No, almond flour will not work. It is way too moist and the cookies would fall apart. The white rice flour is necessary for the texture and it helps to bind the cookies really well.

Do you think the white rice flour could be substituted for tapioca or potato starch instead?

Hi Grace! Unfortunately, not. The white flour is the only flour in the recipe and the substance. The flour is what gives structure and chew to the cookie. Since tapioca and potato are starches, they dont give the same structures as flours. They always have to be combined with flours to work best. Im sure regular all-purpose flour would work in place of the white rice flour though if you would like to try that and you arent gluten-free.

This recipe came out amazing! I cannot have rice flour, but am also GF, so I substituted the rice flour with 5 tbsp of oat flour and 1 tbsp potato starch. I also subbed in honey for the maple syrup. Iced with the clasic white icing, these were delicious and have the perfect consistency! Thank you for this awesome recipe!

Awesome Grace, so happy to hear that oat flour and starch sub worked well, yay! Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback!

These cookies are so gorgeous. I made them using all purpose flour and almond butter and they turned out beautifully!

Thank you so much Carla! So glad to hear you enjoyed them so much!

These cookies will be our go to oatmeal cookies!! Thank you for all your testing, to come up with this fantastic cookie.

Awesome Tracey! So glad you loved them and they are your now go-to cookies, yay!

There really are no words to describe the amazement of these cookies!! When I first tasted them, I literally laughed out loud because I was so delighted! They are one of, if not the best, cookies Ive ever had! I made 3 batches yesterday for my daughters birthday party and people were going nuts!! (Obviously) I reeeeeally wanted to try them with coffee, so I hid a few away to sample with coffee this morning and O-M-G!!! Brandi, you are seriously a WIZARD!! People love coming to my house to eat because of the recipes you create!! Thank you endlessly. And also, they couldnt be easier to make!!! Thank you!😊

You are such a sweetheart Brooke! This comment seriously made me so happy and I loved your pic on Facebook! I love that everybody loved them so much at your daughters birthday party, awesome!! I know right, they are so good with coffee!! Thank you so much for your kind words!!

Oh, these are SO happening. LOVE a good oatmeal cookie!

I was hopeful that my cashew butter would turn out. Note to those who have never made it, do not use a nutribullet. I tripped the thermal overload on mine 🙁 Use a blender or a ninja processor or better. It turned out pretty good however one slight problem (user error) I tasted the batter by mistake and the equivalent of 2 large cookies never made it to the baking sheet. It took every once of me to not eat the batter instead of baking it – its one weakness. Next time I make these I am going to make 4 batches worth and freeze them for the future. There is no way these are sticking around for more than 2 days, behold the power of milk and cookies. These turned out thin but very large, almost like those jumbo cookies i remember from childhood.

Hi Chad! So very happy you loved these! I know right, the batter is sooo dang good, its hard not to eat it all right then, haha. Yes, you need a standard large and strong food processor to make cashew butter. I use this one and it makes it in about 5 minutes!

Chad, we had the same problem with the batter!

Haha, yes, the batter is to die for!

Cookies, also my weakness! And youre such a doll making all these kinds of recipe variations! Love the cashew/maple icing ….will try this! xoooxoxox Ashley

Thank you so much Ashley for such a lovely comment! If you love cashews, then you will like the cashew icing. Its definitely different than traditional icing, but is still good!

Good old fashioned oatmeal cookies are deeelish! And these full fat version ones are where its at. If Im eating dessert give me some dessert woman!! Thank you! And yes please.

Yes, these are just like the classic ones I ate as a kid! Soooo good!

Oh, I used to LOVE these cookie s when I was little. I can almost taste them right now! Ill take the ones with ALL the icing please! 🙂

You went above and beyond with all of those different versions! I can only imagine how much fun you and your family had eating all of those cookies. Im going to guess that you had some happy neighbors too. 🙂

I finally made these today and my whole family LOVES them (how could you not?)! Seriously amazing Brandi!

Aww, yay Naomi! Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! Glad everybody loves them!

I love all of the icing variations Brandi! It was an unexpected surprise – and I do love icing 🙂

Had to review these because they are so delicious. I happened to have a jar of cashew butter on hand so I used it and then followed the rest of the recipe as written. They were such a hit over here, we LOVED them!!!

Yay! Thank you so much Stephanie for taking the time to review these, I appreciate it so much. So glad they were such a big hit!

These look amazing! I cant wait to try them. I was wondering in I can use peanutbutter on place of cashew butter and honey in place of maple syrup?

Hi LeeAnn! Peanut butter should work fine if you dont mind them tasting like peanut butter. They of course will not have that classic oatmeal cookie taste from the original, but should still be yummy. As far as honey though, I wouldnt suggest it. It is SO much sweeter, thicker and stickier than maple syrup and do not believe it would work well in these. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to maple syrup, I would suggest agave. Otherwise, syrup really is the best and what I use for 90% of my dessert recipes 🙂

So happy to hear that Katreena, thank you so much for the review!

Omg. These cookies are amazing! Ive recently been looking into vegan baking, GF and DF…these cookies are better tasting than regular cookies. I used coconut milk icing and left some uniced for my sugar free friend. Thank you for this incredible recipe Ill be making these year round.

Woohoo, I love hearing that Karen, thank you so much! I really appreciate this review!

Brandi does it again! These cookies are fantastic! Crispy, chewy, sweet but not too sweet, they taste EXACTLY like the bad-for-you old fashioned iced oatmeal cookies I used to eat! And I may have made a double batch of icing hehe!

I loved this recipe! mine turned too thin and crushed hahaha. what made it happen? do you have another option to replace the butter? I will try them again because even they where crushed, they tasted amazing. And I will try another recipe too. thank you

Hi! Are you sure you used cashew butter and not regular butter? Regular butter is oily so it would make them spread/melt too much. These shouldnt be too thin because cashew butter is thick. Im not sure what you mean by crushed. If you did in fact use cashew butter, it sounds like you used a brand with added oil. I only use raw cashew butter that I make myself. Only ingredient is cashews and its super thick as you can see in the video. Let me know what you used so I can help!

These are absolutely amazing and truly taste like old fashioned oatmeal cookies! Will definitely be making these again for my family on Christmas!

Yay Carolyn! So happy to hear that! Thank you so much for the amazing review!

If using the yogurt or coconut milk for the icing, do the cookies then need to be refrigerated?

Hi Ariel, yes, I keep mine stored in the fridge if they will not be eaten within a day. But they are fine to sit out for awhile too for a party or gathering!

Ok I have one quick question. I am most likely going to make these this Sunday to bring into work on Monday and you suggested I make the powdered sugar version for the coworkers. Which powdered sugar one? The one with the coconut milk or the one with the plant yogurt?

I would do the icing with the coconut milk!

I cant believe I didnt leave a rave review last summer for these scrumptious cookies! They are a HUGE HIT with everyone, even those who say GFV baked goods just arent as good as regular. They are consistently chewy with a nice crunchy outside. This morning I knew I HAD to make them again but was devastated to learn I was out of white rice flour. So it was either brave the snowy roads or try sweet white sorghum flour. Im relieved to tell you they were still fabulous with sorghum. 🙂 I even used leftover cashew butter to make your Double Chocolate Fudge Crinkle Cookies. (Im not a big fan of using sunbutter. The cashew sub makes them SUPER delicious!) Those and the Cinnamon Roll Cookies alone make me soooo happy I bought your cookie eBook last year! Have a wonderful Christmas, Brandi! Thank you for the joy you bring to so many. 💜 Im off to make your new gingerbread cake!

Oh, Colleen you totally made my day!! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful and grateful message, it truly means so much to me! I always love hearing from you! So glad to hear they worked well with the sorghum flour, yay! I think since these are cookies, it is easier to swap flours (as opposed to a cake) and that is great to know. Oh, I cannot wait to hear what you think of the cake!! I really hope you are able to make the main version with the spelt and brown rice flour because it is truly perfect and the most fabulous soft texture. I did list a white flour sub, which is still good, but the texture is not as soft/light because of the higher gluten amount. Anyways, cant wait to hear!

Sorry, Brandi. It looks like I forgot to leave my name in the review above. But thats OK. It lets me leave another 5 star review. Yes, these are THAT FANTASTIC!

I experimented with a few different recipes for healthy plant based cookies for Christmas this year, and these were by far the best. I used almond butter instead of cashew, just because that was what I had at the time, and iced with the classic white icing made with coconut milk, which turned out great. I stored some in the freezer, taking out one or two when I wanted a snack. I couldnt wait for them to defrost, so tried eating while still frozen, and they were even better like this – crisp, crunchy, light and delicious. Great recipe, thanks Vegan 8

Cashew Butter : I have an old Cuisinart from the 80s and it made the cashews into a dough and not a butter. Should I add a bit of water? Also I also tried my Vita mix but it I think it was beginning to over heat.

Hi Marita, that sounds right, it reaches a dough-like stage, but you need to keep processing it as noted and it WILL turn into a super smooth, loose and creamy butter, similar to a frosting texture. You definitely do not want to add water, it will make it spoil faster. Just keep processing. It can take several minutes depending on the processor, but if it reached a dough, you are on the right track. Do not use a Vitamix, they are not good at making nut butters because the containers are too thin, food processor is all I use for nut butters.

These are absolutely amazing!! Its been a long time since Ive had a crunchy, chewy, oil-free vegan cookie. So glad you list weight measurements; otherwise, I wouldve been way off on the rice flour. My omnivore family loved these. I was too lazy to make the frosting, so ended up adding chocolate chips. Yum!

Yay! So happy to hear that Marlene! Thank you so much for making them!

these look so delicious!! I have all the ingredients except cashews, but I do have peanut butter in the pantry. How do you think peanut butter would work ? Ive never tasted a peanut butter oatmeal cookie and am worried about the taste. Any experience in this area ?

Hi Joy! Yes, I definitely would get the cashew butter or make it (I always make mine) because classic old-fashioned iced oatmeal cookies have a very distinct taste and peanut butter, unless you want a peanut butter flavor, will definitely change them. Im sure it would taste good, I just dont know since I havent tried it and I wanted these to taste like the originals, which they crazily do!

Im not the best baker, so I was very happy when these turned out so well. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I even followed your advice and made cashew butter from scratch for the first time in my food processor.

Thats wonderful to hear Lindsey! So glad these turned out so well! I always aim to make my desserts easy to follow and bake for even novice bakers 🙂 Thank you for the lovely review!
