    I made the bar cookies from this recipe and brought them to school
    last year. Oatmeal cookie lovers (there aren't that many of us)
    went crazy about the bar cookies. I had to tell everyone -- just
    follow the recipe from the Quaker Oats carton.

    Absolutely the best. My Mom's always come out in little mounds, mine
    end up flat. I read the reasons why somewhere (overbeating the solid
    fat? Butter too warm?) but it doesn't matter; they're all good!

    Maybe they were too warm when they went in the oven - I wonder if
    chilling the dough a bit would help.

    Thanks, Tara .... it never occurred to me to make them into bars. Much
    faster and easier!

    My guess is that she's using shortening, and you're using butter.

    nothing wrong with that - it saves you from having to write out the recipe.

    You can do the same to toll house cookies, and some sugar cookies too.

    These are delicious. My friend makes her own version of this recipe and
    brought them over last week when the kids were off. I served Kona
    coffee with them and it was soo good. She asked where I got the coffee
    so I let her know to order online at https://konaluna.com to get pure
    Hawaiian java, not blends. I asked what she adds to her cookies and
    she told me she puts mashed banana and and finely chopped almonds in
    her oatmeal cookies. They are really good!
