The original recipe I took this from stated “the best vanilla cookie dough base, ever”.  I didn’t think that, though they are very good, I think that using the white and brown sugars will make a huge difference, I used sucanat in place of the sugars the first time and the next time I used the
white and brown sugar.  I can definitely see a huge difference in the taste.  The sucanat “overpowers” the vanilla flavor.  But, either way they are super tasty.   My add-ins were chocolate chips and chopped pecans.
