I think this is a great recipe, aside from the overwhelming taste of baking soda. I had to reduce it to 1/2 a tsp to get a normal tasting cookie...

Okay, I took the advice of some of the other reviewers of this recipe, and added a little less baking soda. WOW these cookies are amazing!! I added raisins and pecans, because the cookies just seemed to ask for them! Great recipe.

Good cookie - my adjustments: one egg instead of two, only 1/2 tsp baking soda, only 1/2 tbls water, and I added 1 tsp vanilla, I used oil instead of shortening and refrigerated for an hour before baking so they wouldn't run together.
