"This recipe has been in my family for many, many years. My late mother heard this recipe given out on the radio one day years and years ago and she made them. They are delicious and I am forwarding the recipe to you because I am afraid it may otherwise become lost over time and I wish to share it with you."

I wanted to cut down on the fat, so I used 2 tablespoons less butter then suggested and they came out very chewy. I had planned to add apple sauce to make up for the butter I left out but I forgot, and they turned out great. I also added dried cranberries instead of chocolate chips, which made them very very good.


I played a little fast-and-loose with some of the additions to the dough. My household is not crazy about raisins, so left those out. But used the nuts and chocolate chips and even added some white chocolate chips that I had left over from another recipe. Love the deeper flavor of these over most basic oatmeal cookies and may even try them some time with the raisins. My husband loved and my co-workers "snarfed" them.

Hmmm. I think this recipe needs a few more instructions, especially if using chocolate chips. Here's what I would add/change: melted butter and shortening before adding to the mix (if you don't, you melt the chocolate chips). I would also cut the butter down to 3/4 or 1/2 as one user suggested; add 1/2 tsp. more ground cinnamon and split the sugar into 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup raw or demerrara or brown sugar. Other then that, I think the next batch should turn out better.
