I did alter it a bit, due to what I had on hand. e.g. 2 c's oats + 1 c of granola cereal. 1 1/2 sticks of butter + 1/4 c of regular crisco shortening. I used Craisins because it's what I had in the pantry. I added 1/2 tsp walnut extract. I lined my cookie sheets with wax paper. I used a scoop type tablespoon to measure out the dough, which I rounded over the top of the spoon (I would guestimate it at approx. 1 1/2 tablespoons) It made 40 palm sized cookies. I used long cookie sheets, which I was able to fit 15 cookies on each sheet. I baked both of sheets at the same time, I had to switch them around because the bottom rack of cookies wasn't cooking as fast as the top rack. I had to cook them for 15 minutes, but this was due to having 2 big sheets of cookies in the oven. The 3rd sheet cooked at 10 minutes. Final product produced an ever so slightly cripsy outer edge and a soft and chewy center. PS This is not the same recipe as Quaker's (who cares where it came from, as long as you have it). The amounts of butter and sugars aren't the same, + it doesn't call for cloves. Speaking of the cloves in this recipe... it doesn't make it spicy, it just makes them taste perfect! I have acid reflux & almost everything burns my throat but these cookies didn't. Drizzle icing across the tops by mixing 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 2 1/2 tsp milk, 2 1/2 tsp light corn syrup, 1/2 tsp walnut extract. Very Good Recipe, Thanks Beth!
