Recipe by MirandaLee
A family favourite that we've always preferred to everyone else's variation. Quick and easy to make, too.

At 6:30 I was finishing up dinner, when it occurred to me - there was a meeting taking place at my house at 7:30, and I was supposed to provide dessert! I had none. Fortunately, I remembered seeing this recipe. By 6:37 I was trotting into the kitchen, clutching my printout. (I did cut the recipe in half, and reduced the sugar by one quarter.) By 6:52 I was scooping out cookies. By 6:58 I was clearing the newspapers off the dining room table and realizing I still had half an hour to goof off. Oh, and the cookies? Delicious, and very well received.
