Why I Love This Recipe

We visited Maine when I was child, and there was a bakery that had these cookies. This was 40 years ago, and it's the only cookie recipe that has stuck with me. I love the different flavors and textures! Sweet, salty, buttery, tart and crunchy.

4 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
12 Tbl. unsalted butter, room temp.
