    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.

    They were definitely good. There was no amount listed for baking soda, so mine didn't expand as much as they're supposed to - I think. I used chunks of chocolate (definitely not 10oz worth) and only about 4 oz of macadamian nuts. I will definitely use this recipe again.

    Delicious cookies! I used Jen's suggestion of Toll House holiday red and green chips and they turned out beautiful. Very cheery! I used 1 cup of macadamia nuts (4 oz.) as they are expensive and hard to find in bulk, which was a good amount. These were part of my 2008 Christmas gift trays along with Recipe#145470 and Recipe#26849.

My little house is overflowing with cookbooks, thank goodness I found Recipezaar! I can collect all the recipes I want! I live in Fort Worth, Texas close to my two grown kids and four grandchildren. We love to visit Costa Rica. This is a picture of my whole family over spring break.I'm the big momma in the back. We went to Costa Rica and had such a great trip. We are now importing Costa Rica coffee. <br />I enjoy baking with my granddaughters. We like to make cookies and cupcakes. Saturday morning is reserved for cooking lessons with the kids. <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /></p>
