The original recipe on the back of the Quaker Oats container is the best oatmeal cookie recipe in existence. If you want them on the softer side, bake them about 90 seconds less.

Here is a link to the recipe, but I don't know what that "transfat-free shortening" crap is. Use BUTTER - the kind that comes from a cow!!

I use the standard oatmeal cookie recipe that comes on the Crisco Butter flavor shortening packaging. The trick to moisten cookies is to put them in a container or a large plastic ziplock bag and place a slice of bread in with the cookies overnight. I have no idea why this works but it does.

That sounds good to me, and when I USED to bake that was the best recipe. After all, they want to sell thier oatmeal, eh?

Oh and most definitely butter, real butter, like from a cow! LOL

If you want them really moist - again I use the recipie on the canister. I subsitute 1/2 of the butter with apple sauce- seems to really fluff them up. They are more moist and fluffy though (I also use vegetable oil rather than butter for the remaining half.) But, I make dozens and eat them for breakfast :-) I also cut back on 1/2 of the white sugar to make them a little healthier for breakfast.

I recently wanted to make oatmeal cookies, but all I had were the instant oatmeal packs (brown suger/cinnamon). I found a recipe online using the instant oatmeal and they came out delicious. I cooked a little under the alloted time so they came out nice and chewy.

If you use brown sugar instead of white sugar they will be chewey, moist and delicious! This works for chocolate chip cookies too -- though with those I use 2 parts brown sugar to 1 part white sugar.
