    I just made this recipe for a HOA BBQ today and everyone loved them. I'm glad I cut the Chocolate chips to 1/2 a cup.

    It doesn't say that you have to wait 6 months. It says that the mix will keep for 6 months.

    Is there any way to make this recipe without having to wait 6 months? My aunt had an oatmeal cookie recipe that involved mixing some of the ingredients and waiting about 6 hours for it to soften. Why does this recipe indicate that you must wait for 6 months?
