What is the difference between quick cooking oatmeal and old fashioned rolled oats? All of my recipes for oatmeal cookies say to use "quick cooking" oatmeal and all I have is a huge box of old-fashioned rolled oats, can I use that instead?

There is a recipe on the underside of the lid of my box of Quaker rolled oats for oatmeal cookies and my family loves them.
What I do is put the old fashioned oatmeal in my blender and chop it up more and I also have used the old fashioned oatmeal in place of the quick. Hope this helps!
You can use old fashioned oats in place of quick oats. Just run them a few seconds in your blender or food processor to chop them up a bit.

Quick cooking is cut a little finer. You can accomplish the same thing by whirling your old fashioned oats in a food processor for a few seconds. You can do it a little longer than that and make it instant. The smaller the pieces, the quicker it cooks.
I use old fashioned oats all the time in my cookies, just as they come in the box, no need to chop or blend if you like the hardiness ...
I like the crispiness of them better.

I have an oatmeal cookie recipe that calls for oatmeal, I find it very vague but am assuming that it means the slow cooking kind. Can I use instant instead? How would this change the outcome of my cookies?
