These are absolutely delicious! I read that some reviewers' cookies were coming apart, so I added 1/8 c extra flour as recommended and I made sure that I rolled the cookies into tight balls before placing on cookie sheet. I also reduced salt by half, due to reviews that the cookies were too salty. Will make again and again!

This was a big hit with my students. The first batch came out a little too flat, though (not like the picture). I added 1/4 cup more flour and 1/2 cup more oatmeal, and that made them nice and big (still chewy) without being too stiff. I'll certainly be making these again.

These are absolutely delicious cookies. We love cookies that stay soft, and these are perfect. I read the reviews before I made them, and used 2 tablespoons less margarine than called for. They didn't spread flat at all, and the texture is soft and chewy. I baked them on my air bake cookie sheet and it took about 16 minutes. I also chopped up the walnuts real well, and every bite has bits of walnuts in it. Delicious!!!
