I tried these for the first time with butter (while not great for you, a whole lot better than the hydrogenated oil that is shortening), all brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 2-1/2 cups oats. They were great, but the cooking time almost doubled. That's fine for the cookie; it's not so good for the raisins I added. The second time, I added a little of the regular sugar and cooking time was diminished - maybe 13-14 minutes, I think.
I also baked 2 cookie sheets' worth at a time, rotating from top rack to lower rack and vice versa about 1/2 way through.
I'm going to try to add some cinnamon next time.
My husband and kids love these cookies. Yum! :)
