Suzanne, that's an interesting question! Butter vs. margarine shouldn't make a difference when it comes to spreading. It seems more likely that something in the ingredients or environment has changed. Are you using the same oven? Have you switched types of oatmeal? If you're getting smaller, more compact balls with the cookie scoop than you did with a spoon, feel free to smoosh them down a little with your fingers before putting them in the oven. If that doesn't help, then you might consider adjusting some of your other ingredients as mentioned in this article. Happy baking! Kat@KAF
