I grew up on these mother made them all the time and when I started having children of my own, she passed the recipe down to me. I wanted to make some the other day and was heartbroken when I couldn't find my recipe! Thank goodness I found it here. There are, without a doubt, the best cookies! If you like chewy cookies, you will love these!

I, too, grew up on these cookies, and when I started my family my mother passed the recipe down to me also!! I love very favorite cookie and my kids (who are now adults) still love them!!

These were great. My husband and all my kids (6) loved them. One was hesitant, but ended up eating about 4 of them. She is typically picky. She said that there wasn't enough chocolate.
