Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe on the Taste of Home bulletin board a few weeks ago. They are good cookies, if you like your cookies soft. Don prefers crunchy cookies, so these weren't the hit for him. I liked them.

  1. I like crunch but my boy likes 'em soft. Interesting recipe.

  2. These cookies were soft as long as they husband loved them, and he is VERY picky about his cookies!
