Recipe by Hey Jude

From the Chicago Tribune - comfort food! These come out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Cook time is per batch.

Nice cookie recipe. Boy did mine spread! And I agree that 400 is too high of heat, my first batch was burnt on the edges and raw inside. So I lowered it to 350 and the next batch looked a lot better. I'll admit they taste great!
