Here's the recipe for the light, crispy kind of oatmeal cookies.

2 c. sugar
2 c. flour
6 c. rolled oats
1 tsp. salt
1 pound butter or margarine
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. boiling water

Mix all ingredients in a very large bowl, reserving the baking soda and water. Dissolve soda in the boiling water, and add to other ingredients and mix well, using your hands if necessary. Raisins, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, cinnamon or nuts may be added--about 1 cup. Drop by teaspoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet, allowing room between cookies as these spread a good bit. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool briefly on the cookie sheet to allow them to set up.
Makes a bunch of delicious, light, crispy cookies.
