This recipe makes wonderful large cookies that the whole family will enjoy. It makes 3" cookies and uses more flour than other similar recipes I found on Zaar. This is from an original Nestle's ad that was posted in a newspaper, probably around 1978 or so.

I have always preferred this recipe over the newer version. I like to substitute whole wheat flour and add raisins. Although butter is by far the best, solid coconut oil can be substituted with great results! Outstanding recipe!
