      I've made this recipe SEVERAL times, and it gets better and better each time. Make sure you not only melt the butter but also let it brown a bit for a more enhanced flavor. Plus it is imperative you let it chill for at least 2 hours in the fridge before making cookies.

      I love this recipe. I use it as a basis for my favorite oatmeal cookies. I reduce the bread flour to 1 1/2 cups, and stir in 1 cup of chopped almonds, 2 cups of oats and only 1/3 cup of chocolate chips by hand {after the flour is mixed in). All other ingredients and the mixing steps are the same as the basic recipe, except I use the microwave to melt the butter. The dough needs several hours of chilling before baking. The dough should be stiff when chilled and hard to scoop. Bread flour is essential for me. Baking takes 11 minutes in my convection oven. I get 24 cookies from this recipe.

      This is a great cookie. I followed the recipe exactly, and when I baked them at 375 for 14 min., they were a little too crisp. Reducing the bake time to about 11 minutes made a wonderful crispy-on-the outside, chewy-on-the inside cookie. Delicious.
