  10. Cook's Note in Response to Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Review: I've found it's important to make sure you replace any of the add-ins you leave out (raisins or butterscotch chips) either with the same amount of another add-in or with an equal amount of extra oats. That will keep the cookie from being too "runny".
