I love chocolate chip cookies, and these are some of my very favorites! The secret ingredient, malt, will have people asking what went into these cookies! I love my cookies soft and chewy, and these definitely fit the bill...you decide if you'd like nuts in them or not...I like pecans.(this pic was taken w/o nuts)
