Great recipe. I found that pressing dough into 8 x 8 pan and baking is great, or even better forming dough into log and chilling overnight then slicing and baking is even better. Great flavor, my husband loves them!
The dough wouldn't stick together. I couldn't even roll it out. Had to form into balls and flatten with a glass. Very disappointed.
This was a very big hit in my family--everyone wanted the recipe at Christmas. Best method for me was rolling into a log, then slicing.
For a different (and really yummy) flavor and texture, try six-grain "oat"meal. We discovered this when it was the only thing in the house to use (CA grocery strike).
Also was very good with raw sugar sprinkled over the top before baking--gives cookies a bit of a sparkle and a touch of sweetness.
Fantastic, but surprising dough. I mixed up the dough, put it in the refrigerator, went to gather eggs, found the dough had expanded over the top of the bowl and pushed the refrigerator door open. I worked the dough back down, spreading it out in a 7x12 pan, baked it and enjoyed very much a wonderful cookie. I would like to know what makes the dough expand and if anyone else had that happen.

Very simple recipe, but taste great! Cookies are lightly sweet, great for people who don't have a sweet tooth. Final mixing of the creamed butter/sugar with the flour/oatmeal does take a bit of a strong arm, but definitely worth the effort. I used a touch of almond extract in mine, which turned out well.
These cookies are super easy to make and taste great! I left my dough in the fridge over night and then just before baking, placed them in the freezer for about 15mins. I found it made the dough easier to work with. I placed marischino cherry peices on top for decoration. My roommates loved them!
i used dark brown sugar and rolled into balls. i pressed my thumb into cookies and added jelly on top. they were wonderfull my family loved them
