I got this recipe from my best friend when I moved. My sister and I love making these cookies together!! Jordie loves these cookies so much that every year she wants me to make them on her birthday!! I suggest that you double this recipe because it does make a small batch. My favorite thing about these cookies is how the semisweet and milk chocolate chips complement each other!! Our motto is "We make it, You eat it!!"
