Good soft cookie. I added a little more flour and they turned out great. This reminds me of a recipe I lost and have been trying to find a substitute. Thanks for sharing. P.S. Hubby loves them!

This was a nice, basic cookie recipe in which just about any flavored chips, nuts or candy can be added. I added Nestle's peanut butter and chocolate swirl chips. Thanks Bunlady for posting!
