Can I Use Quick Oats in Cookies?

You do not want to use quick cooking oats. The texture is not the same and it will not make a delicious cookie. You need to use old fashion oats for this recipe.

Why are My Cookies Dry?

Your cookies could be dry because you did not follow all of the steps in this recipe. Another reason the cookies are dry is because you have over baked them. Be sure to follow the steps to get the best tasting cookie.
