What a great recipe! I made a batch (using peanut butter chips and no macadamia nuts) and took them with us on a trip with several other families. They were a huge hit with everyone. The oats have a great texture that made some people think there was coconut in the cookie. I'll definitely be making these again and next time will try using chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
This is a fantastic cookie recipe that I originally found in MY BHG cookie cookbook. They are SOOOO yummy. I usually use a full cup of butter and no shortening, old-fashioned oats rather than rolled, and have also added butterscotch chips to the semi-sweet and white chocolate. I also make them a bit smaller to get 2 1/2 to 3 dozen and just shorten the cooking time by a minute or two. Thanks for posting this--may many more enjoy these cookies! :)
