I agree with Rolanda, however, her comment saved me from making that mistake and for her future reference...they were only plain because you allowed them to be plain. Here's what I did while in search of the worlds greatest cookie WITH THIS RECIPE! 1) I finally stopped believing that somehow Miss Crocker with her prepackaged ingredients, would somehow get me where I needed to be. Stephanie on the other hand...ROCKS! 2) Obviously, I'm a guy and guy's tend to try to keep with the KISS method of "keep it simple stupid" which I did and in knowing that I am surely not rolling anything I am not going to drive or smoke (in my younger daze the latter) I opted to adding an egg, a 1\8 cup of olive oil and 1\2 a cup of sugar while replacing half the vanilla with almost extract. Why? Because of 3) I added about 1\2 cup of chopped almonds-pecans (totaling 1\2 cup of nuts), goatmeal, shredded coconut, white chocolate chips and 1\3 cup of toffee chips. The egg, oil and sugar help to offset all these extra ingredients and in keeping with my KISS method...after stirring it up by hand for longer than I would have imagined...I lazily poured the whole thing into a 12x24" flat (1\2" high), aluminum pizza pan and spread it out evenly. Gave my Labs the lickings of the bowl and stuck it in the oven. You MUST monitor its progress to make sure it's baking the way you want or you'll get crisp edges. After about 10 minutes, I rotated the pan in the oven and then in 10 more minutes, by palm, I patted it
