Growing up, my mom made these chocolate chip cookies. I always loved them because they were soft instead of hard and crunchy like so many cookies. Even after all these years, she still remembers that these are my favorite.

The man in my life will love you for these, he likes soft cookies but I like cruncy. It's been hard to break the pattern.
Thanks, Marsha
