Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV
Just made these. I left out about 2 tablespoons of each sugar. I usually cut back on sugars in all cookie recipes. Jus a preference. This recipes makes about 72 using a #24 scoop. Equivalent to about a generous tablespoon. I baked for 11 min at 350F. Very nice cookie. Sure to be better one the next day, allowing the flavour to settle in. I set aside enough batter to make 24 cookies and shredded 1/2 an apple (about 1/2 cup packed). II folded that in and scooped out. Baked +2 more minutes. Out of the oven, a slight apple flavour. Sure to be better the next day. My past experience of adding apple to cookies says the cookies will always be soft, actually too soft in a sealed container for our preference. So they can be kept in a container in the cupboard with the lid slightly off. Last about a week like that ... if you don't eat them all first.

Giant Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
Followed the recipe as is, used a #24 scoop. Cookies remain very soft with an interesting toffee flavor. The first pan I took out of the oven at 14 min with indications of browned edges. But they fell flat :( , could have easily gone 2 more mins. They are the bottom layer in the photo I submitted. The second pan was 3/4 full and I left in for 15 mins. These turned out much better.
