"This recipe is from my aunt Becca who gets requests all of the time from family to make these. She mixes them by hand, so I do too. They'd probably turn out just as well using a mixer though. The butter in the recipe really makes them good. This recipe makes quite a few so feel free to halve the recipe or make it all and freeze the cookies for another day."

"I halved the recipe. They are a delicious, hearty cookies. Near the end of mixing in the dry ingredients, I had to work the dough with my hands because it was so stiff. I also formed the cookies by hand. They are crunchy yet moist and a little chewy. Enjoyed by all! These would be great for bake sales! Thanx for sharing!"
"this will be my go-to oatmeal cookie. it is not cakey: i love chewy cookies w/ crispy edges. i shared them with many people and they were a big hit! absolutely yummy!"
"Fantastic! I used my mixer to cream the butter and sugar ( I think that makes for a lovely texture in the final product) and to mix in the dry ingredients a bit and then I got my hands in there and mixed in the chips. I used a medium sized ice cream type scoop (Pampered Chef) and it made a nice sized cookie and yielded 75 cookies which I baked for 11-12 minutes. The cookies were a hit at the bake sale I took them too! The texture was amazing! Crispy edges and chewy interior, yum!"
"These are great! I normally make the standard Toll House chocolate chip cookies. These are much heartier cookies. They came out crispy but not hard, and they are loaded with chocolate chips. My husband and son ate several right away, while they were still warm and gooey. I used 5 medium eggs instead of 4 large, and I substituted 1 cup trans-free shortening for 1 cup of the butter. I used a cookie scoop to portion them, and I got 104 cookies instead of 90. Also, I baked 2 pans at a time, so that even using convection, I still had to bake them for 12 minutes instead of 6-8. I think this may very well replace my old chocolate chip recipe."
"I was in a hurry and only made 1/2 recipe and I made it as a pan cookie in a jelly roll pan. The flavor of these is wonderful however I think I baked them a little too long as they dried out and were best dunked in milk! I am going to make these again and update the stars when I make them as actual cookies! Will let you know ASAP!"
