I wanted a buttery oatmeal cookie; this recipe looked promising. I made half the recipe and used mostly cinnamon (reduced amount a bit) and a little ginger (1/8 tsp?). Used 1/2 C mixed pecans/currants. Replaced about 2 tbsp of the [light] brown sugar with Demerara sugar. 10 minutes to bake. Result was excellent with the exact amount of butter flavor and texture I was hoping for. The recipe would probably work quite well in its original state—I'm just usually feel compelled to tinker if I can. The small amount of ginger added a nice touch...if you like ginger.
