Could someone point me in the right direction for a recipe that wont' run all over the place when they are baking?

I love oatmeal cookies but I totally suck at making them. Maybe just a problem with the cook or recipe, I don't know which.

Thanks!

I use the recipe on the lid of the Quaker Oats container. You can find it on the Quaker Oats website. I use half white Crisco and half butter where butter is called for in the recipe. I also use the quick cooking oats.

I also do not make huge cookies. I guess I like having -3 cookies instead of one big one.

Whenever I need a reliable recipe that gets lots of good reviews, I do a google search starting with "food.com" , and following with "best XYZ", where XYZ is the specific recipe I want. So, in this case, I googled FOOD.COM BEST OATMEAL COOKIES and the search returned this recipe - 213 reviews with a 4.9 (out of 5) rating. Best Oatmeal Cookies I figure that 213 people had good results, or there's a grand conspiracy afoot.

I also swear by the recipe on the Quaker Oats carton.

I'm pretty sure my sister uses the one on the Quaker oats container, too. She puts in raisins and chocolate chips....yum-my!

That Quaker oats recipe is a TNT.

Try chilling the dough before you drop it on the pan and let the pan cool before you plop another batch on there. I would also make sure to use butter rather than margarine. It starts out more firm and it doesn't melt in quite the same way.

My all time favorite recipe from 1963 Home Ec class:

Oatmeal Crispies
For 2-1/2 to 3 dozen cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 beaten egg
2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1-1/2 cup quick oats (I use the five minute kind; chunkier cookies that way)
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Cream together shortening and sugars. Add beaten egg and vanilla. Beat well. Add sifted dry ingredients. Add oats and nuts; mix well. Make into roll or bake as drop cookies at once on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes

The key in this recipe I found is the flour; unusual measurements, but great cookie!

Now, I want some!

What a great tip! I'm totally stealing that (I Google recipes all the time).

I haven't ever made this, but the BEST oatmeal cookies I've ever had in my life come from a recipe on the back of the Craisins package (dried cranberries from Ocean Spray): White Chocolate Chip Craisin Oatmeal Cookies. A friend brought them to a party last year, and they were *stunning.* YUM!!

I'm assuming this is the recipe: http://www.oceanspray.com/Recipes/Corporate/Desserts---Snacks/Oatmeal-Cranberry-White-Chocolate-Chunk-Cookies.aspx

What's a gal to do? First well-meaning PR members give us recipes like this, then later Postings will be on diet, exercise, yoga,
fitting into new fashions. Makes me want to head to the kitchen tomorrow morning for some cookie-baking....oh, right, I'm not supposed to have any sugar in the pantry--and I like a little peanut butter in mine!
