The secret is out on the cookies baked at Tall Oaks Inn. The owner (my sister-in-law) had to sign a non-disclosure agreement on the recipes for Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Cracked Sugar and Brown Sugar Pecan Rounds. These cookies were kept in cookie jars in the dining room for all the guests to enjoy whenever they needed a sweet fix. Now that the Inn has closed, the recipes were released.

This one is almost a Snickerdoodle.
