"To get really crisp cookies, just cut the amount of brown sugar in half, and increase the white sugar by 2 tbsp. Then bake for 15 mins~ voila! Crisp cookies that you CAN'T get from using equal amounts..." See more of brown and white sugar."
"I've always used the recipe on the oatmeal box but this is superior to it. The only adjustments I make are to grind 1/2 of the oatmeal in my food processor, added 1/2 cup each of raisins & pecans, and..." See more I did not use the choc. chips or coconut. I also treated them as a "drop" cookie since my dough was a little moist. I use this recipe as a base for peanut butter cookies (add 1/2 cup peanut butter & leave out nuts & raisins and grind all the oatmeal) and chocolate chip cookies because they are the perfect combination of crispy outside & chewy inside."
"This is the best cookie recipe that I've tried in years. I didn't have quite enough shortening so I put about a tablespoon of butter in with it, no problem. I lost control of the vanilla bottle when..." See more measuring and put probably twice as much in as I was supposed to, no problem. Didn't have quite enough white sugar so I topped it off with brown sugar, no problem. And best of all, I always forget the last batch that I put in the oven and end up ruining them, but these, even though they were pretty brown, they were still great! Unbelievable! I put chocolate chips in them, yummy. I can't wait to try some of the other suggested variations. You won't be disappointed with this recipe."
