Why are my oatmeal cookies hard?
This usually happens when you overmix the batter.
Why are my oatmeal cookies dry?
There could be several reasons:
You used too much flour (remember, just 2 cups). Make sure not to pack too much flour tightly into the cup. After scooping, lightly shake the flour.
You overbaked: remember that at 350°F you just need 2 to 5 min. Because of the heat inside of them, they continue baking a little bit even after you’ve taken them out from the oven.
Please note that:
Very limited and preliminary scientific evidence suggests that eating about 1 tablespoon (16 grams) of corn oil daily may reduce the risk of heart disease due to the unsaturated fat content in corn oil. FDA concludes that there is little scientific evidence supporting this claim. To achieve this possible benefit, corn oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. One serving of this product contains 14 grams of corn oil.
Corn oil is a cholesterol-free food that contains 14g of total fat per serving. See nutrition information on product label or at www.mazola.com for fat and saturated fat content.
