“We made these cookies in school during the 1950s. They are delicious. May substitute butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, or raisins for chocolate chips.”

First rate cookie, which I kind of suspected it would be if this is indeed a recipe that's survived since the '50s! I followed the recipe as directed, only adding some chocolate covered/candy coated sunflower seeds because hubs loves 'em, and because they're colorful and festive! This embellished oatmeal cookie is light, and both crispy and chewy. It's a darn pretty cookie too, as if it came from an old-fashioned neigborhood bakery, substantial looking with crackly tops. To satisify all preferences I baked some a litte longer than others and while baking time certainly affects texture, all were great! This recipe should be in everyone's recipe box for the basics - not only is it reliably delicious, there is also much room for versatility with add-ins. Try adding different flavored chips, chopped white chocolate, dried fruit or raisins, chopped nuts, even chopped up candy bars. Great as is, this cookie is also definitely worth toying with and customizing to suit your mood or tastes!

I did change recipe a little, using 3/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup vegetable oil. This is my family's favorite cookie recipe by far!

I may have done something wrong but the dough was very dry and crumbly. I had to add milk to thin it and don't know if this was good. The taste is good but the ones I baked before adding milk were hard, hard, hard. Excellent dunkers but not easy to eat otherwise. Help if you can to correct as would like to try again!!
