"I found this cookie recipe last year at Christmas time and it's been my favorite ever since! I always make the dough the day before I bake them and refrigerate overnight. With my cookie cookie scoop, I get slightly more than 5 dozen from a single recipe. It's no fail! I will say I've not used the "5 chip" version yet - I make the dough exactly as written however for my 'mix-ins', I add one whole bag of peanut butter chips and one whole bag of mini Reece's pieces. Makes THE BEST peanut butter cookie on the planet!"

"These are the perfect cookie. A little bit of everything to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth. The only change I made was I use dark brown sugar. It has a richer taste. My family loves these."

"Good cookies, but for me it was almost just too much chips. I like one or two distinct flavors, not all at of them at once."

"By far the best cookies ever. I am not a fan of the butterscotch chips so I just leave them out but that is just my personal taste. I call these the ultimate cookies and really if I am going to make cookies I don't even consider making anything but these."

"Incredible cookies!! They're just everything in one - peanut butter, oats, chocolate.... MMMM. I don't add as much chips because I like them better, you can taste the dough more :) I only add 4 kinds of chips, 2/3 cups each."

"This recipe is one of our family favorites! This freezes well- just place wax paper on a cookie sheet and place your rounded balls close, but not touching, onto the sheet; place in freezer. Once frozen, stick in a freezer bag and you have fresh cookies anytime you want! To bake- place cookies on cookie sheet and into the oven, THEN pre-heat the oven (yes, with the cookies inside!). Once the oven preheats set the timer for about 8-10 mins. and bake as usual!"

"FANTASTIC cookies! I love that they taste different with every bite you take due to the different chips in them. What an awesome cookie. All my co workers who tried them had an argument of what was in them and I told them they were all right and they were stunned. But they LOVED them as well! Definitely a keeper! Thank you!"

"This is a great cookie, and a fun recipe to play with! We experiment with different flavors of chips and adjust the amounts of them to change the flavor. It's also nice to be able to just throw in whatever chips we have on hand to use them up, like a soup recipe. We all love them!"
