    For Halloween: "kitty litter" style... Buy a new kitty litter pan, pour grape nuts (as the litter) in the pan and mold your cookies into kitty "poo" shapes, cool & place them throughout the pan. Guests scoop the cookies out w/ a kitty poop scoop. Place a big decorative black cat in the pan. Fun! - 10/27/08

    These are just like the ones my mom used to make. Super easy and good. Great to take to church potluck. If you're watching calories or carbs or fat, be very careful. Easy to eat way too many. - 7/6/09

    In my house these are called the cow poop cookies and are great with a little coconut! Awesome to freeze. An for a more sinful treat add marshmallow! - 2/7/08

    I have made this recipe many times, minus the salt. Responding to ONANARCISO's request for help. The key is to not let it cook too long. Let it come to a boil and then only let it come to a rolling boil for one minute. Let it cool for a minute. If you put the oatmeal in too soon it will be mushy. - 1/29/08
