These are always so soft & chewy. They are guaranteed to turn out everytime!!

This is the same as the recipe I had posted before the site did a cleanup of duplicates. This is a great cookie that I have made for many years. It makes a lot of cookies. I like them to be crispy, so I make them small, let them cool completely and keep them in a metal tin. If you want them chewy, make them larger and keep them in an airtight container (e.g. Tupperware). This is definitely a family favourite!
