My cookies keep falling apart!
Asked Aug 12, 2008, 04:48 PM
I am new to baking and I decided to start with something easy. I have tried to make the oatmeal cookie recipe on the Quaker Oat box. I follow the directions exactly but the cookies always crumble apart when they are picked up. Even after they cool for an hour they still fall apart. Also they seem rather greasy, the recipe calls for using a half pound of softened butter, that seems a bit high because I have seen cookies that other people bake and they are not greasy like these are? Any suggestions?
