"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Since the recipe makes so much. I usually divide the dough and do some of each variation. Then you have some for every taste bud.

I have found that when using the airbake cookie sheets it takes longer than 15 minutes for crispier cookies.

Dough freezes well. I scoop out the dough onto cookies sheets placing close together. Freeze thoroughly and put in ziplock bags until ready to use. Then you can bake 6 or 6 doz at a time.
