I just pulled the last tray of these out of the oven, and I couldn't wait any longer to rate this recipe....FABULOUS! Soft and chewy in the center with just the right amount of crunch around the very outer edge. These are by far the best cookies I have tasted, better than gourmet bakery cookies or even those Otis Spunkmeyer cookies they sell in restaurants. I followed the recipe exactly, and added 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. A word of WARNING, though, this recipe takes some elbow grease!! I don't have an electric mixer (or even the hand-crank kind), so I mixed it by hand with a spoon. Quite a workout! The dough is very thick, but it is well worth the work. Also, mine were done at 8 minutes...don't overcook!! They will look raw when you take them out (browned only around the edges and soft/gooey in the center), but they continue to set as they cool. As my boyfriend (who grabbed two right off the first tray) said, "these are the PERFECT cookies!"
