      This recipe was posted for me, and thank you very much for posting it. I made so many cookies for Christmas with this recipe. I think I made 2 or 3 batches, and it produced countless cookies. I added so many different things to make so many different kinds of cookies. Some things I added: coccoa powder (to make chocolate), chocolate chunks, nuts, butterscotch, cinnamon, chopped peanutbutter cup, and cookie cutters by adding a little extra flour. Thank you very much for taking the time to post this!

      You know I have made these so many times and never thought to come and update my terrible of me. These are standard in my house now with the dayhome kid's allergies. I double the recipe and make 1/2 into chocolate chip and half into raisin (my daughter doesnt like raisins). We add peanut butter chips and walnuts, and smarties...whatever we have on hand. They never last long around here.
