"I've been making this recipe since it first appeared in "Taste of Home" in 2007 - the recipe card is stained and tattered, I've shared it with many, and I don't even bother to make any other recipe - These are THE BEST EVER! I add a cup of chocolate chips, 1/2 cup pecans, and use real eggs - usually make a triple batch and freeze 2 dozen per bag. Oh - and I use real salted butter instead of shortening..."

"Wow. I made this recipe. Was really soft, but kinda crispy on the outside. I added 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterscotch chips. Made 76 large cookies. Very tender inside, but crisp outside. Not too sweet. Will definitely keep this recipe and make again!"

"Per other reviews, I used sweet butter, halving the recipe, using 2 eggs, making the dough too soft, so I put in 1/4 cup cocoa. That somewhat changed the flavor. I'll see what my grandkids think."

"I wasn't a fan. We love peanut butter and oatmeal so I thought this would be a good one. I guess I am not a fan of cooking with shortening. It had a very distinct taste. If I had to make it again I'd use butter as a substitute."
