Tips & Hints:
  • Cook for 18-22 minutes for crispier cookies. For triple-choc cookies, add 1/3 cup cocoa to the dry ingredients. This makes a great gift for kids to give their teachers-not just for Christmas, but as a lovely thank you gift at other times of the year. At Easter, replace the chocolate with mini chocolate eggs. Try the caramel-filled variety for an extra treat.
