In 2005 I had back surgery. My Mom came for a week to watch the kids/take care of the house. She made these for the boys and they devoured them she said. I don't know how many these make. I know at least 3 dozen - so that is the amount I will put. Okay - I have tried at least 2 different times to edit this recipe on the directions. More than one person has wanted to make it so I will finish the directions here! :) Basically - mix all ingredients very well in large bowl. Drop by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 11 minutes. If you like them crunchy - let them bake a bit longer. Enjoy!

This made about 8 dozen 2 - 2.5" cookies. I found that 11 minutes gave me cookies burnt on the bottom - 10 minutes was just right, and my oven is usually right on the money with time for baking.

Delicious cookies!

I love this recipe so easy although I did change it up a bit to make it more healthy. Less sugar and butter more applesauce and I made them into bars because I was short on time. It is such a filling cookie, that doesnt stop me from eating four! I also did not put as many chips in. Making my 3rd batch in a week right now.
