I have an ancient Cowboy Cookie recipe which has been a family fave for several generations. As it has shortening, I opted to try this recipe, many of the ingredients are on target. I used the recommendations of many and increased the vanilla to 2 t., reduced the sugar to 3/4 c. and increased the choc chips to 2 c. (no brainer here) also cooked at 375. A bit disappointed in the results, but will try again as I think the oatmeal I used really took over the recipe. (Coachs Oats, 100% whole grain oatmeal) In days of old, I used the classic quick oatmeal found in most markets. My old recipe differed this way: 1/2 c shortening, 1/2 c. oleo (margarine), 1.5 C. flour, 3 cups quick oatmeal. All other ingredients are the same. Just didn't get the texture and flavor that made these cookies our family fave for so long. Also, I only was able to get 4 dozen cookies of this recipe, but I use 2 ice teaspoons and made good sized cookies.
