Awesome base to start the most scrumptious oatmeal cookies. I used less white sugar, 1/3 cup i/o the 1/2 called & cookies are still perfectly sweet. I didn't have baking soda so sub in 2x's the baking powder. I also rum soaked my raisins first, amazing flavor here when baked!! I doubled the vanilla & omitted the butterscotch. Also only used raisins, 1 1/2 cup and 1 cup of chopped walnuts. Amazing flavor, great chewiness & great crunch as well. Simply Perfect!!!
