My neighbor, Lisa, in 1984 made these for me as a housewarming gift, and I've been making them ever since. Fail-proof, always soft and wonderful, these are the most-requested cookie I get from friends and family. Easy and fun for kids to make too, you can put Easter or Christmas M&M candies in them instead of the chocolate chips. Thanks, Lisa!
