      This is the kind of cookie that would make you run home from school. A nice soft oatmeal cookie that you would never get bored with given the wide verity of stir in's. I made as written using half dates and half walnuts. Thanks for the post.

      These were great. I used white chocolate and pecans, delish. Made for DH's pool club at the Elks... they all gave you the thumbs up. This is a nice basic recipe to have around when you're trying to please so many pickey cookie eaters. Hummmm. is there such a thing, as a pickey cookie eater? Thanks for sharing Mom's recipe

      We loved these cookies! I only made 1/2 a batch, and wish I had made the whole recipe! They were soft and chewy, and sooooo good! :) I used semi-sweet morsels, and no nuts this time, although I like the fact that I can add anything, to suit my tastes! Your Mama was a smart lady, Lori Mama! Thanks so much for sharing your treasured recipe with us; I know that I'll be making them again!
