“I am saving this recipe from the back of an old chocolate chip bag. My daughter has been making these for years and I don't know how long it will be before the bag with the recipe falls apart. These are good cookies that don't survive the day. We have made these with both milk chocolate chips and semi-sweet chips and both are good!”
