    High Altitude Perfection

    Anne Sterry from Denver, CO

    I have baked these closer to sea level in the past and loved them. When I moved to a higher elevation I had zero success until I tried this: increase flour to 1 1/2 cups, at a tsp of water with the flour and decrease both sugars to somewhere between 2/3 cups and 3/4 cups. I think I like them even better than before!

    flat at higher elevations

    Heather Casiano from White Sands, NM

    I have loved this recipe for a long time. However, we now live in a higher elevation (4700 ft.) and I see no directions on how to adjust this recipe for higher elevations. Just following the recipe the way it is written here results in very flat, thin cookies that fall apart as I take them off the cookie sheets.

    Wonderful!

    Marie Foley from Hanover Township, PA

    Not as flat as the regular oatmeal scotchies. However with both recipes I am a bit heavy handed with the oatmeal and never over mix. Will continue to enjoy this recipe with my family.

    SOLDIERS FAVORITE

    LUCINDA MIGOT from TEXAS

    I MADE THESE AND SENT THEM TO MY HUSBAND'S AND SON'S UNITS IN AFGANISTAN. THE SOLDIERS LOVED THEM SO MUCH THEY KEEP ASKING ME TO SEND MORE. THEY EVEN SHARE THEM WITH THE LOCAL CHILDREN. THESE COOKIES HOLD UP VERY WELL IN SHIPPING. THE GUYS SAY THEY ARE THE PERFECT REMINDER OF HOME IN THEIR POCKET. I PACKAGE THEM IN ZIPLOCK BAGS OF 6 COOKIES TO FIT IN UNIFORM POCKETS. THE PERFECT SNACK FOR LONG DAYS AND NIGHTS, THESE COOKIES DO NOT MELT OR GET MESSY SO THE SOLDIERS LOVE TO PACK THEM IN POCKETS ON PATROL. THEY SAY THE CHILDREN LOVE THEM TOO AND THEY ARE GOOD FOR THEM SO THEY FEEL LIKE THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING HEALTHY FOR THE CHILDREN WHEN THEY GIVE THEM OUT.

    Best oatmeal cookie ever! Quick and easy to make, a favorite in my house. Make sure the batter isn't too soft though or they will come out too flat. We like ours soft and chewy.

    These cookies are delicious! They're best warm from the oven with a glass of milk. Underbake them slightly to prevent them from getting to dry when storing.

    Spreading Cookies

    RHONDA GOOD from ANN ARBOR, MI

    If you add a little more flour these will not spread as much. Try the traditional recipe that is also provided here, it hold together better.

    Listen to Grandma

    JANET McKeehan from Lake Elsinore, CA

    I made these cookies today and found the cookies to spread and stick, as others have said. I didn't have butterscotch chips on hand, and added 1/2 cup coconut and 1 tsp cinnamon. Didn't have butter, either and used margerine. My Danish grandma would have had a fit! There's nothing like BUTTER to bake with!!

    Oatmeal Scotchies are the best!

    Emily Mandile from Ellicott City, MD

    I often make these cookies for picnics/ potlucks where there are 4-5 plates of chocolate chip cookies. They stand out in a crowd and I have always gotten great comments. My kids love them and so do most of my neighbors. I always make them for the holidays too as a break from chocolate.

    These cookies taste good but they look horrible. They spread out and became thin when baking. Then after they cooled they broke apart when trying to get them off the baking sheet. I followed the directions to the letter and I will not make these again.I would not serve these cookies to a guest.

    These cookies are very good tasting! My problem like some of the other reviewers was that they spread out too much and I could not get them off the sheet. I put the rest of the batter into a round pie dish and baked them like brownies. That turned out fabulous!! Try them as brownies with vanilla ice cream and caramel, Yum!

    I made these cookies for work yesterday and everyone recognized them as their favorite cookies of all time! I added cinnamon and (somehow) misread the sugar measurements, so increased each to 1 cup. They disappeared QUICKLY. I will be adding these to my usual rotation.

    Debbie Ryder from Hot Springs, VA

    I have made this so many times, it is a wonderful recipe the taste is .......sinful!! Although here lately I have been having problems, they turn out flat and when I go to take them off the sheet, they crumble, last time I made these, I ended up wtih a cake pan full of broken cookies, but they were still a good snack ! and I will continue to make these but hopefully will have better luck with them ! I have to be doing something wrong !

    I have made them several times and my best friend requested that I make a batch for my daughters wedding. Needless to say I made several batches and they were a great hit. They are very tasty and can be frozen. Because I work full time I am always looking for a cookie that I can freeze.

    Horrible!!

    Chrissy from MI

    I tried to make these cookies thinking that they would be really good. I baked the first batch and they came out flatter than a pancake. I thought I messed up so I started all over and made a new batch following the recipe carefully. They were still as flat as a pancake plus they crumbled as I tried to take them off the cookie sheet. These are totally not recommended!!

    Tastey yet Crumbly

    Donna Doxtater-Hawkins from Colonial Hieghts, VA

    The recipe is easey to put together. The cookies taste great. But they didn't stay together after baking. I tried the chewy time and the crunchy time -- both were crumbly. My son loved the dough. I bet it would be yummy mixed with vanilla ice cream. I think you could also add some raisins.
