This was a great recipe that was a breeze to make. I found that the cookies didn't spread out as much when I chilled the dough for a little while. Awesome recipe!

Yum! This recipe was easy to make using a mixer, simple to follow, and very tasty. I left out the nuts, but added green food coloring paste in honor of St Patrick's day, and golden raisins. My kids thought "leprechaun gold" was a great idea! Quite delicious.
