I'm not a fan of flat cookies. I like them chunky, thick, and well-formed. But the taste reviews were so great for these that I had to try them. Well, after reading the other reviews and putting all the "tweaks" together, I have to admit that this is an awesome cookie! For those of you that are interested, here is what I did--no flatties here!
1. Used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening,
2. reduced white sugar to 1/2 cup,
3. added 1/2 cup finely processed rolled oats,
4. omitted baking soda altogether,
5. increased vanilla to 2tsp (just cuz I love vanilla :) )
I used milk chocolate, semi-sweet, and butterscotch chips; walnuts, pecans, and macadamias (just personal preference) and reduced amounts to 1/3cup each for chips, and 1/4cup each for nuts since I used only half the dough for these. To the rest of the dough I added chopped maraschino cherries, white chips, and macadamias. I chilled the dough thoroughly then rolled into balls and baked on parchment paper. No sticking, no flat cookies...just beautiful, chunky, heavenly tasting gems! Even better after a day or two. Thanks for a great recipe to work from!
