Edit: Oh man these are the best cookies I have ever made. They seem to be 10000% better if you make them a day (or at least several hours) in advance. I didn't like them at first because they seemed overly oily and more like a flapjack in texture, but that was straight out of the oven before they'd had time to properly solidify. Now this is my default recipe whenever I need to bake something sweet for a group! - 06 Sep 2013
I'm glad to see the recipe has been revised! I, too, had to guess at mixing. The size of the pan is also not mentioned. The first time I made them I used a smaller baking sheet, and I had to bake them for about 30 minutes. This time I used a 15 x 10 pan, and it was better. I still had to cook them for 18 minutes, yet they are still the gooey texture you should look for. These are very easy to mix up! I would recommend not greasing the baking sheet; with this amount of oil, it's really not necessary and makes the batter much easier to spread. I add 3t of baking powder and 1t of salt to the recipe with all-purpose flour. - 27 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
So easy and fast... If you don't have self-rising flour on hand (which I did not) just be sure to add a little baking soda and baking powder. - 23 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
