I got this recipe from a friend at school who did a speech on them. She gave us each a sample. They were so good!

An excellent cookie and so tender. I thought we'd have to refrigerate the dough before forming into balls but it worked out ok without chilling. We used a small meatball (1-inch size) scoop and made about 5 dozen cookies.
