I followed the directions exactly and they turned out good. They DO spread out A LOT so take that into consideration. I needed to let mine cook over 15 minutes before the edges browned. I used sprayed foil on my cookie sheets and they came right off without sticking. Alteration: I put a thumb print in half of mine and filled it with strawberry jam - those tasted very good.

These are so easy to make and taste so rich! I used 1/2 marg. and 1/2 butter. I had to leave in the oven for 15 minutes b4 the edges started to brown. I had to learn to remove them VERY carefully from the pan! I had a couple casualties, which my DH snapped up. :) I used parchment paper and they were still sticky on the bottom, not dried on, but sticky and very fragile. But after letting cool, they were fine. Similar to a lace cookie that my dad makes each year; but I like these better. These would be good with coconut mixed in or almond flavoring. UPDATE: Do not use any "light" margarine! It has too much water in it. To salvage them, I crumbled the dough onto the sheets and baked them longer and they came out like basic garnola.

Wow! Simple and delicious. I could not stop eating these. My son called them granola cookies. I flattened out the dough ball a little bit because I was getting a little yummy & chewy bump in the middle, but we love the crispy edges more. This way I reduced the baking time to 12 from about 15 minutes. My dough balls were kinda big. YUMMY! Thank you.
