The cookies were way too runny and fell all over the oven.

I see why these are called flying saucers! These cookies spread like crazy. Definitely add that cup of flour the first reviewer suggested--you need some binders with these cookies. They aren't the prettiest; even with my cookie scoop they spread out with weird edges. They do taste good, but they need to cool a bit on the cookie sheet before removing them or you end up with cookie pieces. Thanks for the recipe!

You MUST ADD FLOUR to this recipe for it to turn out! Then it is rather good. Without flour the cookies melt across the pan into a continuous,thin, fragile layer. 1 cup of flour added with the oats is sufficient to make the cookies turn out a normal cookie thickness and diameter. I did substitute butter for the shortening, maybe this thinned the cookies a bit, but the substitutions list on this site says they can be interchanged and I doubt the shortening would make such a large difference.
