good recipe, but needed modifications. I added one stick of butter instead of the shortening (who needs hydrogenation), less than 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 extra egg, less butterscotch than it said, I added a handful of raisins, and finally, instead of 3 cups oats, I used about 2 3/4 cups. The result: absolutely the best oatmeal cookie ever!!



These didn't want to hold together very well, but the flavor was good. I made a second batch adding a second egg and 1 cup of butter rather than shortening. To make them special for my coffee-loving friends, I added 1 cup cappucino chips along with the chocolate chips. Yummy! These are really really good with the modifications.



This was a good cookie but I found it kind of dry. I baked it for 11 minutes, which may have been too long. Also, I used 2 1/2 cups of oats rather than 3, and I think next time I'll only use 2.
