RECIPE BACKSTORY
The name tells it all. My husband told me, after we had just been arguing, to "Make him some cookies!" Well, I was so mad and I just threw these together. He ended up telling me they were the best cookies he ever had and so that is where the name came from. Well, if they are the best ever, I should share.
