This recipe was adapted from a Chocolate Chip Cookie that I received from a dear friend years ago. The first time I tried it quickly became my favorite cookie! When I tried to make her cookie recipe in Michigan after moving away from Idaho I realized it would need a few changes due to the altitude difference. So I made adaptations, and changed a few things just a bit, and have been able to create the perfect cookie!
*For those that live in higher altitudes a little less flour is needed.
