    This is no dought the best cookie i have ever had, and all my friends and family love them to. They always tell me i need to make them to sell..LOL. I use the recipe minus the oatmeal and raisens as a base for other cookies and they come out just as good. I can not express how good this recipe is...... just try it and you will see for yourself......Thanks Akarlin for a great recipe.

    Sound yummie, I use a Ice Cream scoop to drop my cookie dough onto the parchment paper. They all come out the same size which makes it nice for using to make Ice Cream sandwiches YUM. Great post - thanks.

    My recipe is very similar to this, and it is my most requested cookie! Gold Medal flour is the best for cookies, BTW. It tastes the best.
