Remembers Barbara H. of Appleton, Wisconsin, “My mother gave chocolate chip cookies a new twist for the holidays by substituting chopped red and green spiced gumdrops for some or all of the chocolate chips.”
While dabbing in the kitchen one day, my husband, Dale, came up with these hearty cookies. I begged him to make them again, but he hadn't written down the recipe. Ten batches later, he finally recaptured the wonderful flavor.
One day when making cookies, I discovered I didn't have any eggs. In a panic, I called my grandmother for expert advice, and she told me to use mayonnaise. These turned out to be the most moist and delicious cookies I'd ever eaten!
