I, too, got this off internet 3 years ago and it is my alltime favorite to take to neighbors, ailing church members, etc. (You should 1st check for food allergies, likes/dislikes first, cauz these cookies have about EVERYTHING in them!) Everyone goes GAGA over them! I had always made them using rounded teaspoons (I misread the recipe for 2 years), which essentially doubles the recipe but makes the cooking time critical. I bake (the smaller cookies) for 10-11 minutes and they turn out chewy. Leave them in about 1 min longer and they are crispy. Any longer than that, they are TOO crispy -- not good at all.

Someone finally posted this recipe. I've been making these for a while. We also use Rice Krispies, reeses pieces and coconut. Sometimes I throw in macadameia nuts (when I can afford them)and white choco chps

This has been a favorite in my household for 20 years. We prefer ricekrispies for cereal and I add 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar Ozarkannie

This is a great recipe, my son and husband loved it. After just three days they were completely gone and were begging me to make more. Must try.

Was I in the right place at the right time, or what? For a couple of months now I've been pining for a new cookie recipe that would satisfy some vague yearning. Well, I found it here, and from Ms. Dorn, to boot! These cookies are wonderful!! At first, I thought they might be too "busy" for my taste, but absolutely not. As I usually do, I subbed 1/2C of applesauce for 1/2 the butter...and they turned out beautifully. One thing about reducing the fat in cookies, it helps keep them from spreading and they had a nice "thickness". I took them out at 12 minutes and they came out nice and chewy. The coconut, raisins and choc. chips are a wonderful combination. "Cookieathon"...here we come!!!!! Thanks, as always, Ms. D. from one of your biggest fans (oh, and my DH is waving as well! :)

This is a good, versatile cookie. You can just throw in whatever you have on hand. I only had to bake mine for 10 minutes or they got too brown. Tasted great. Thanks.

These are excellent cookies for children to make! They can melt the butter in the microwave and mix the rest up easily by hand! My five loved it, with son # 3 declaring them "Killer Cookies indeed!" as he begged for a fourth!

I found this recipe on fabulous foods.com a couple of years ago and think that this is one of the best cookie recipes ever. I added Craisins, as well as chocolate chips, toffee chips and raisins. DH and I don't particularly care for nuts in cookies (maybe we are both a little nuts), but I'm sure that there are several different kinds of nuts that would work. I think macadamia nuts would be good.

OK..so I saw all these great reviews on these cookies, so I thought I would given them a try. Well...I wasted an awful lot of ingredients on these and they turned out horrible. They were sticky and flat.! I lay none of this blame on the creator of this recipe...but if someone could give me a tip on what im doing wrong..I would be sp appreciative!!! I am an avid baker...so I was so disappointed in myself.
