I created this recipe on accident. I was using a recipe a friend had given me for chocolate chip cookies, but having a brother who is lactose intolerant, and having family members who have been told by doctors not to eat chocolate, I changed the recipe just enough to make it my own. It was a real crowd pleaser, too.
