This recipe is great by itself, though of course after making it a few times I felt the need to try some changes. I do use all butter (but mainly because I always have it, while I don't always have shortening). I also use pumpkin pie spice and extra cinnamon. The BIGGEST change I have made though is that I use a mixture of golden raisins, cranberries, and dried cherries. I used to HATE oatmeal raisin cookies until I discovered that if I soak my dried fruit in a mixture of egg, vanilla, and the spices for at least a day before using they are extra moist and juicy and completely change the texture. I make the cookies this way and call them "oatmeal fruit and nut cookies". AMAZING.
