“Thick and chewy, these cookies demand you to grab a glass of milk or cup of coffee and just savor the moment! They are that good! This is the closest I've come to the cookies made in a speciality cookie shop. To ensure you get the results expected, don't deviate from the recipe. I have not made allowances for high altitude baking.”
