Pairs Well With
My sister made this recipe for us when we returned from the hospital with our first child, Cody. The cookies cook up fat & slightly crispy outside and just a bit soft to the bite, but not too soft. She started with the basics from the famous Nordstrom recipe and improved upon it (believe that?) and now there is no other recipe that we'll use.
We hope you enjoy them!
