I actually forgot the powdered sugar and they still turned out excellent!! It was a soft dough (since I had forgotten the extra cup of sugar, otherwise it would have been more stiff) but I liked it that way. Very easy to scoop and press with my hands. They baked nice and crispy. I used butter instead of margarine, 2 tsp of vanilla instead of 1, 1/2 cup of white and 1/2 cup of brown sugar and about 1 and 1/4 tsp of salt. I also added my own homemade chocolate covered toffee that I crushed into bits. I loved the sweet/salty flavor combination it had with the extra salt. My father only likes to eat oatmeal cookies, no matter how many types of cookies I've tried to bake for him, none compare to his precious oatmeal. So when he said he liked these even better than his usual oatmeal cookies, that confirmed that this batch was a real winner. I will make them again with my modifications. I may even make them again without the cup of powdered sugar, but I will also try it with the powdered sugar just to see what happens! This is a perfect dough to add other ingredients to, you can get creative like I did with the toffee bits. Toffee and pecans...yum! But you could add chocolate chips or other nuts. I really liked this recipe--it's a keeper. I'm sure it would have been more "sandie" if I hadn't forgotten the powdered sugar. But as it was it was still a hit with my family.
