I know everyone tells you they have the best recipe, but really, this one is the tops in my book. It's moist, chewy, rich and sweet. I think the secret is the molasses. Anyway, I've been making these for years now and have only given out the recipe once before. I figured it's time to share. Sometimes I switch it around and use 3 different types of choc. chips or add macadamia nuts...whatever tickles your fancy. Oh and warning....I do this all by hand, so in the end you have a slightly sore arm!!!
