Substitute dark chocolate chips and pecans and you have Chesapeake cookies. Deelish!!
We make these cookies EVERY year at Christmas. We actually end up making them several times because we always forget how good they are and the first batch is devoured! You will not be sorry you tried this recipe. It lives up to it's nickname around here. We also have dubbed them 'Crack Cookies' because they are SO addictive. YUM
These have a great flavor, but mine spread out a lot! I think I will put the dough in the fridge before I roll them out next time to firm it up a little; it was a warm and humid day here today so that may have affected the dough. Made for I Recommend Tag.
