“This is the Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that went through the internet "dubbed" as the recipe a lady was charged $250.00 on her charge card as at a well known restaurant, when she asked for the recipe after tasting the cookie for dessert after her lunch. She thought the recipe was $2.50. My husband is a Volunteer fireman and I am requested to bring these cookies to our picnic every year. They all love them. Last year I didn't have any oatmeal and didn't want to run to the store, so I made a different chocolate chip recipe and they all new the difference. These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have eaten. Prep time does not include baking.”
