Old-fashioned oats vs. quick-cooking oats

Katie Nell | Jul 13, 2005 11:29 AM

I understand what the difference between old-fashioned oats and quick-cooking oats is, but don't know when to use what? When a recipe calls for just oats or rolled oats, what is it referring to? Can you substitute one for the other? What do recipes like No-bake Cookies and Oatmeal Cookies want you to use? Thanks!
