    Al Hunt's Note:

    This has been described as very close to the Dad's cookies we all remember from our youth. I don't know about that, but if you want a flat basic cookie you can customize, this is it! Try adding rolled oats and rice crispies. Or almond butter and slivered almonds. Peanut butter and chocolate chips. This will take two large mixing bowls. If you plan to make this recipe, start by taking the butter and eggs out to warm then to room temperature. That'll take ½ to 1 hour. I use uninsulated cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
