When I showed my daughter the picture of the cookie in the recipe, she was absolutely ecstatic. She could not wait to get this into the oven and in fact, she cheered when it was finally finished! I adapted the recipe a little bit to fit our needs but the end result was the same: warm, chewy, chocolaty goodness perfect for our annual back-to-school dinner.
Alternatively, you could start with a pre-made dough from your grocer’s dairy section. These would work just as well in this application.
