"I made a double batch of these so I could send some home with my grandchildren after a visit. The ones I kept for us at home are gone and I plan to bake a triple batch next time. I am definitely not going to lose this recipe! It is a keeper! I used mini chocolate chips."

"These were way better than I imagined - crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. They also tasted perfect after being frozen!"

They will bake up crunchy which I love."
