<p>love the format you used here. I thought, *oh no 18 steps!* But you just made each baby-step crystal-clear. Perfect for brand-new cooks, like kids, or for us old-timers who are a little burned out and distracted due to holiday madness. I'll be making this recipe later today -- looks delicious!</p>
<p>hmm... i made these but there was oil oozing out of the bottom of them and were pretty much un-eatable. could there be a typo in the butter or the peanut butter? looking around other similar recipes, i couldn't find any that had a full cup of pb and a full cube of butter. on the other hand, i used 'old fashioned peanut butter', which doesn't have any of the additives of typical store-bought. maybe that was the problem?</p><p>(i rescued them by returning the whole shebang to a large mixing bowl, adding another 3/4 C or so of the oats, mixing it with my hands till new oats were fully absorbed. gently reheat to get everything gluey again, shape by hand into balls. not perfect, but ok!)</p><p>let me know your solution, or confirm my senility, and i'll update these comments... still love the way you put this instructable together!</p>
<p>Great cookie recipe.</p>
