- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt

- 3 cups chocolate chips or 3 cups walnuts (or 1/2 of each)
- Cream marg and sugars throughly, stir in beaten eaggs, water and vanilla.
- Add dry ingredients and then the rolled oates and the chocolate chips/nuts.
- Drop by teaspoon on greased cookie sheet.
- Bake@ 350 12-15 minutes.
Good cookies, but we added 1/2 cup of flour and 1 cup of oatmeal and left out the water. That seemed to give us the right consistency.
I gave this receipe to my daughter the other day and she called back crying as she said that she wasted about 10.00 worth of stuff. She said that the cookies melted all over the pan in a big mess. Please check the amounts of the listed ingredients as maybe the flour or sugar is wrong on this web-site. I told her to add more flour and when she called back I guess the next batch was ok. She said she probably added at least another Cup of flour to the remaining ingredients that she had. I would hope that this would be corrected so as not to spoil a good receipe.
The cookies were delicious -- But I had to add ~1C of oats to keep them from being too runny. (My first couple batches were more oatmeal CC pancakes than cookies.)
