TIPS AND ADAPTATIONS:
-try these add ins: raisins, dried cranberries, chopped dried apricots, chocolate chips, your favorite nut, or a combination of these (add only about 1/2 cup total to the mixture)
-to make it a little healthier, use a mashed banana instead to replace some of your butter or mix in some wheat germ with your flour
-10 minutes may not bring you a 'golden brown' cookie, but it will allow the cookies remain soft after baking- so don't overcook!
-simply double the measurements to double the quantity of cookies
