"Good Cookies!! You'll be giving out this recipe forever!!! Be sure to leave the cookies on the cookie sheet for at least one minute after removing them from the oven. This allows them to "flatten" and firm up, also make sure you use rolled oats, not instant! Please don't let all the ingredients scare you away from this recipe."
