We went to Kennebunkport,Maine one summer.Right down the street from the Bush estate,was a tag/bake sale going on at the local firehouse.Apparently we just missed Barbara Bush! So this recipe is taken from the cookbook I bought that day.It has a ton of good,old fashioned recipes,from some obviously salty Maine-ites!These cookies are a bit like chocolate kringles,as I call them-but these are just drop n mark with a criss cross(my creation),so easier.Good deep chocolate flavor!
