I really loved this recipe. I was looking for a good, chewy oatmeal cookie that would allow for some add-ins and that's exactly what I got. I made them exactly as stated, and ended up with 49 nice sized cookies. I followed the basic recipe to the T, but changed the add-ins: 1c semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1c toasted almond slivers, and 1c dried cherries. I also used almond extract instead of vanilla, to emphasize the almond flavor. With the additions, since chocolate and cherries are both a little sweet, I felt that the amount of salt was good. However if you're just making a basic oatmeal cookie, you will want to cut down on the salt. Also, if your cookies are coming out flat and burning it is likely because you are over mixing (or over creaming), or because your dough has gotten too wet or too warm ... all of these things can thin out your dough and create a flatter cookie. I'm happy to say that mine turned out great. I did end up having to cook mine for 15 minutes, rather than the stated 12 minutes, because for my oven 12min was just not enough. So many things can go wrong with baking, even the temperature outside plays a part in how your items turn out. If you didn't get a good result the first time, you might want to try again rather than just throw this recipe out.
