KENTUCKY: Munch your way across the USA. Judy Dahman, the state of KY is now represented. This recipe is from "Capitol Cookies", with recipes from every state & Washington, DC. This recipe was submitted by Capital City Christian Church, Frankfort, KY, Lelia Todd, Chairperson.

NOTE: This is a very stiff batter so I added in 3 to 4 tablespoons of milk and they turned out great! Very good, chewy and chocolatey.
