Ma's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just made oatmeal cookies like these, but I also add Butterscotch pieces with the chocolate pieces ,shredded coconut, a few chopped walnuts, and raisins, also threw a few cranraisins, I use about a little handful each, These are GOOD! I make enough to give away. If not, I will finish them, and that I really don't need. That's about 3 1/2 doz. (12/06/2008)
