I wanted to find the best! I ended up on the Martha Stewart website. Of course she had a recipe that would probably turn out perfect... I tried it, and made a mistake that resulted in my cookies expanding like crazy! Opps. BUT these cookies turned out to be light and crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside! HA. I still had a successful cookie recipe at hand. I have since made her recipe "the right way" and was disappointed. With that in mind I am including my "mistake cookie" recipe...I liked it, as did many others, perhaps you will too. I make no claims that it is the best. It is just a damn good one ;) Eat warm and with milk for pure bliss.
