Desperation Cookies

Recipe by riley_68

I love these cookies! They are sooo good & always come out perfectly done. Evryone I've ever made them for compliments them. (The only problem is it makes 10 dozen, althought I guess that could be a good thing....) I got this recipe from Joanne Fluke's book Peach Cobbler Murder.

Loved these cookies! They spread quite a bit but we like a crispy/chewy cookie! They are great dunked in coffee or milk! Definitely will be making these again!
