Too much oil. Cookies were too greasy. I am not a super baker. I admit that. And I don't understand the chemistry involved in creating the perfect cookie. I know that baking soda, baking powder, butter, eggs, oven temps, and even cookie sheet material all have a part in making a crunchy, but chewy, yummy cookie ... but doggone it. This was not the right recipe for me. I followed the recipe exactly. I set the timer for 8 minutes and stood there like a hawk to avoid anything dark brown. I was looking for golden cookies. But my cookies turned out very flat, too crispy (hard), and way too greasy underneath. I had to wash and dry my cookie sheets after each batch, and even then, I could see the next round of cookie dough sliding slowly on the sheet in the oven. I have never used oil before in cookies. And I never will again. On a more positive note: My hubby and kids enjoyed them! Butterscotch and oatmeal are an awesome combo ... regardless of my sad chemistry work! :)
