These make the BEST chocolate chip cookies. I tried about 10 cookie recipes from this site as I am always in search for the 'better' recipe. When I first made this, I didn't change a thing other than using butter for margarine(I kept the shortening as I wanted to see if it make a huge difference. I usually never use shortening) and added 1 cup of chocolate chips, and 2tsp of vanilla. They were the best cookies I have made and reminded me of the thin, chewy subway style cookies which I prefer to thicker cookies. After trying few other cookie recipes from the site which gave me mediocre cookies, I remembered the delicious cookies I've made once! So I went back and made again with these changes: Used all butter instead of short/marg combo(better taste but slight lesser texture), doubled the oats, added chocolate chips and vanilla. I baked 12min for first batch, 10min for second. 10min was definitely much better tasting and 12min was a bit dry and too crispy for my taste. Doubling the oats was a bit too much since it gave too much of the chewy oat texture, which my family preferred but I like softer cookies. Third time I baked, and my favourite result was this. ALL BUTTER, 2 TSP OF VANILLA, 1.5 CUPS OF OATS, 1 CUP OF SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS, KEEP EVERYTHING ELSE SAME, AND BAKE 10MIN. Some say salt is too much but I tell you it is not. If using slow-cooking oats, just let the dough sit in fridge couple of hours to soften them. They do get a bit flat but I prefer that anyways :)
