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. :)

  3. Add, dry ingredients to wet (I do this all at once cause I don't want to over work the gluten in the flour (but the recipe said to mix a little at a time.
  4. Spray your baking sheet with cooking spray, and scoop out the dough (I use a cookie scoop). Press lightly down with slightly wet hands to make a slighty flatten cookie.
