Excellent oatmeal cookie recipe Uncle Bill! I did not have exactly 1 cup of quick-cooking oats (mabey 3/4 cup), so I added more rice krispies, and used butter in place of margarine. I did not change oven racks, no need to, as I baked them for 8 minutes in my air-convection oven. This recipe makes a lot of cookies so there is really no need to double the recipe. These are a delicious crispy cookie that goes well with a cup of coffee or tea. As all of your other recipes, this is a keeper for me, I look forward to making these again soon. Thanks so much for sharing Uncle Bill!.......Kitten:)
