These are very good! I made exactly as written (with quick oats), except I did use a tablespoon of vanilla. I needed 1 dozen cookies right then, so I rolled the dough into walnut sized balls and baked on parchment at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The cookies were a nice combination of chewy and crispy. I froze the remainder of the dough in rolls and will update when I bake another batch. Julia, thank you for the posting! Farm Journal recipes are very reliable and I'm always to have a new one to try!
