These are so good that I BET YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE!!! I sent a "care package" to my daughter's house - the grandchildren called to say they were YUMMIE & my daughter asked for the recipe. The only change I would make next time is to grate the hershey bar into the butter mixture as I think it will combine better. Thanx PanNan!

This is a very delicious recipe. Several years ago I was surfing on the puter and came across this story about this recipe. I don't know if it's true but here goes....A lady and her daughter often had lunch at a fancy restaurant that had these cookies on the menu. They were called Top Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies. Once after having lunch when they were getting ready to leave the lady asked if she could possibly get the recipe, the waiter returned with a copy of the cookie recipe. When the woman received her credit card statement she was shocked to see that the charge from the restaurant was $250 bucks. Sure that it must be a mistake she called the restaurant and was informed that the charge for the lunch was $50 dollars and the other $200 dollars was for the recipe. She was really mad, so figuring that since she had paid so much for the recipe, she would share it on the internet. True story or not these are very good cookies.

This is a great cookie!!!Be sure not to bake longer than the recipe says, I left a couple batches in a little to long, they did not stay as moist as the ones that were baked just right. This is my new favorite chocolate chip cookie!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Very good oatmeal cookie! We liked them because they were not greasy/doughy like Toll House variety of chocolate chip cookie. Soft and chewy with an exceptional texture.

PanNan, Oopps! I put 1 cup each of shortening and butter I was in a hurry. Everyone loved them very light and cripsy a very delicate taste. I will make them again according to the recipe. Otherwise everyone said, they were very, very good! Thanks for a great recipe.

These are chewy cookies. I made sure that they won't turn flat so I scooped out the dough, freeze. then bake for 13-15min. Reduce the brown sugar to 3/4 cup and they turned out less sweet. Didn't add the hershey's choclate bar and they were still great.
