  • Melissa's Note: About the name. These cookies are the surefire way to get someone to fall in love with you -- or at the very least gain a serious addiction to cookies. By giving these cookies away, you may need to be prepared for a marriage proposal on the spot. I have been baking since I was a little one. I was the only girl in a house full of brothers (5 to be exact), so I quickly found my spot in the kitchen. My love affair with baking started with cookies and it is how I won dates in high school by delivering them every Sunday night to my "friends." Love would usually ensue. Now I find joy in baking them for my own 4 little ones and they are my ultimate taste testers in the quest for the perfect cookie. They say we got it years ago so it is about time to share it.

    Absolutely delicious. I raised the heat to 350. Added nuts and craisins as well as white and dark chocolate to equal 2 cups. Next time I will add more nuts and such to equal 3 cups and we will see what happens. Yum.

    My husband still claims these are the reason he married me! Took them to him on our first date!

    I have added coconut and slivered almonds on a couple of occasions and they were amazing!

    My batter seems very wet? Im a little nervous-followed directions to a tee. Im hoping by chilling it, it will turn out fine! Fingers crossed!
