I so love these cookies... They are my family's favorite.

This recipe came from a cookbook that I have; but I "doctored" it up adding ingredients that I like. You can basically use whatever ingredients that you have on hand, ex: m & m's, butterscotch, white or regular chocolate chips, peanut butter chips etc. different kinds of nuts anything.... Chopped up candy bars, raisins etc... whatever it all works...use what you have. :)
