My husband and two sons try other chocolate chip cookies and tell me there's no comparison with mine. And my husband doesn't even like chocolate! These cookies are nice and crisp, but be sure to not overbake them. —Cindy Utter, Jacksonville, Illinois
MAKING these cookies, I feel I'm keeping my mother's Christmas spirit alive. They were her special treat each year at holiday time.
These cookies are great for keeping children busy - they can cut up the gumdrops and eat all the black ones (they turn the dough gray).

THESE COOKIES earned me a first-place ribbon at the county fair. They remain my husband's favorites—whenever I make them to give away, he always asks me where his batch is!
I especially like the fact that the recipe makes a small enough batch for the two of us to nibble on. —Penny Ann Habeck
I've had this recipe since 1938, when the girls I worked with game me a bridal shower. One of their presents was a recipe box filled with their favorites. Inside, I found this recipe, and I've used it for just about every occasion since. They're always well received.
We always had dessert when we visited my grandparents' farm, and this was one of our favorites. During harvesttime, my brothers and sisters and I would take this or another dessert out to the field for the workers.
THIS cookie recipe comes close to the wonderful taste of chocolate that Mama was able to produce in her cakes and cookies.
Because of the "crackles" in these cookies, my granddaughter tells me I've made a mistake when I bake them. "But they taste so good," she adds.
