“I found this receipe in Joanne Fluke's book "Plum Pudding Murder". If you like a dense Oatmeal Cookie and like chocolate, this is definately the cookie for you! Next time I want to try adding in dried cherries! Note, I used semi-sweet chocolate as that is what I had in the house, and I made the cookies about the size of two teaspoonfulls, which made 24 cookies.”
