Not sure what's wrong with this recipe- but I followed exactly as-is and they did NOT work out. Without any flour, the butter and eggs just ran right out of the cookies and off the pan...

These are a family favorite, but the recipe at this site has 3 times the amounts in the Fanny Farmer cookbook. From experience, we wrote a note next to the recipe saying "do not double." You may have better luck if you use a smaller amount. Make sure you use rolled oats, not quick oats, and use parchment paper. If you use a greased cookie sheet, there's a narrow window of time in which they can be removed from pan successfully. We think they're worth it.
