Now we know why the face.

No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

OK - they fried patties were good, but the butter gave them a crust that wasn't right. My memory is that the consistency was the same throughout the cookie. Baking ; baking with flour, baking powder and brown sugar was too heavy. Having tried both I wonder if she didn't do something with a sugar syrup, boiled to the right stage, then mixed with the oatmeal and dried in the oven. Does that spark a memory for anyone?

I Googled "leftover oatmeal cookies" and got lots of results. You might do that and peruse the results to see if anything looks familiar to you. Hope you find the recipe your Dad remembers. I'm sure he'll appreciate your effort.
