Disgusting Oatmeal Cookies!!!

Hanky | Jan 24, 2007 05:28 AM

I made the most awful ones yesterday. Followed the recipe on the oatmeal box, which is how I'm sure I've always made them. I haven't made them in about 5 years so can't remember for sure.
They were hard, didn't spread out at all and even though they tasted OK, a real disappointment. I'm used to a soft,chewy cookie. What could have gone wrong? I used Butter Flavored Crisco, and then the usual ingredients. Any helpful ideas?
