    This is a very useful recipe when you have lots of people to feed! I was impressed by how many cookies I could make with this recipe! This really is the best recipe when you have a lot of cookies to make. The taste is fine - it is not the best cookie ever, but it is hard to find a really good cookie recipe that yields this many cookies. Thank you for sharing!

    I think this is a great recipe. One way to get your christmas cookies done quickly. I used butter flavor shortening. I made the first batch of drop cookies with peanut butter and chocolate chips. Then I made a batch of oatmeal with craisins. My next batch is going to be a snickerdoodle type. The dough makes up nicely and tastes very good.Update: I made these into a snickerdoodle and I liked it best of all. I made the drop cookie with vanilla and 1 t cinnamon. Formed the dough into 1" balls and rolled in cinnamon sugar. Flatened on the sheet and baked for 12 mins. Perfectly yummy!
