What You Need and how to Assemble:
1 Cup Butter Flavored Crisco (1 stick)
3/4 Cup White Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 1/4 Cups Flour (All Purpose Flour will do)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
(2 Eggs and 1 tsp vanilla to be whisked together and mixed with the above dry ingredients just before baking)
Add your nuts, chips, fruits etc (I used about half a bag of both the chips and the crasins, just eye ball it)
and crumble all of the above dry ingredients together in a large bowl (NOT the eggs and vanilla). Do this with your hands until it has turned into a dusty crumble. You can then put the dry mixture in a large ziplock bag and into the fridge until you are ready to bake. For instance, I did the dry mix on Sunday and am baking these bad boys today, Tuesday!
Once you are ready to bake just add the eggs and vanilla and give it a good mix with your hands or a fork. Make golf ball sized cookies and place 12 on a baking pan and pop in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

The above recipe yields 3 dozen cookies.
These things are seriously the best cookies you'll ever have. They're the perfect combination of crunchy, flakey, moist, and gooey. They're undeniably sweet but every bite lends itself to just a slight hint of salt which makes the flavor all that more amazing.
The only downside is that I've made 3 dozen and only need to bring 2 dozen to work - I guess that means someone else will have to finish them off at home!
