"This originally came from, but since their site no longer allows a person to print using Google Chrome, I'm posting it here. Originally it called for rolling and cutting out the cookies, but I don't do that, so technically I've changed it even though everything else is the same. These are incredibly moist, sort-of chewy cookies, and we love them."
