As I read through the recipe, I noticed two ingredients that are usually in cookies were missing... salt and baking soda. I added 1/4 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking soda. The cookies were wonderful! They have a soft, tender texture, not to mention, they make your house smell awesome! I also reduced the amount of white chocolate chips, but that was mainly for personal preference. I thought baking them at a lower temperature for a little longer worked very well for this particular cookie. I will be adding this recipe to my "favorite cookie collection"! YUMMY!


My husband asked me to never make these cookies again! I sent him to work with a dozen of these and he ate every single one! My husband does not care for sweets and he said that this was his favorite cookie. Anyway.. he ended up asking me to make more for him. Great recipe.


I pulled the recipe yesterday and made the cookies yesterday and brought them to some friends, we meet every Monday night. They all said that the cookies were awesome.
