Notes
Adaptation Disclosure: This recipe came from my mom's recipe box from growing up. I have no idea where she got the original or how much she modified it from that recipe. Original props goes to somebody I'm sure. We applaud the inventors of chocolate chip cookies. Someone should give them a....cookie. And some milk.
