I wanted a recipe that makes a lot and this does! Once I got started I realized I didn't have enough brown sugar, so I used 1 1/2c brown sugar, 2 1/2 cups additional white sugar and 1/2 maple syrup. I also substitued 1 1/2 c crunchy peanut butter for part of the shortening and added 2 cups of raisins. These cookies stayed soft and chewy a long time, and there were plenty around so they didn't all disappear in a day! I even put part of the cookie dough away in the freezer so we can have fresh cookies another day, when I'm to busy to make them. After adding the oats, I gave up on stirring with the spoon (which was ready to break!) and mixed in all the extra goodies with my hands. By the way, I had to mix these in my largest stock pot, it was the only think big enough to hold it all. YUM! Thanks for sharing this recipe, it is a KEEPER!
