This is recipe that has been passed down from my mother to me, I am not sure where she got it from, it looks similar to the Edmonds recipe but has slightly different dry ingredient quantities. This recipe is written into my mothers faded, bake-stained and over-used write in recipe book. I do not know when she started this, but it has existed for at least my entire 25 year old life. This is the easiest recipe in the world and is a recipe that you cannot fail!
I have this to my friend Gemma years ago, and she added her artistic flair of substituting the chocolate chips with M&Ms. Such a great idea, and makes the cookies a lot more fun.
