Well I would have to say I think I have gotten most of my baking skills when I was growing up. I had the best Aunts anyone could ask for. When I was young I have so many wonderful memories baking with my Aunts. Those are memories I never want to forget and I will always be grateful for them. One of them was my Aunt Joanne, she has always been the baker in the family and she has so many great recipes, that I hope she will let me share some of them with you. This cookie she has been making for years, and almost every time I see her, I ask if she made these. This is not your ordinary chocolate chip cookie. Every time you bite into these their is a surprise in every bite. They are sweet, salty and I cant even begin to describe how good they are. This is one recipe I am so glad I have, and I am going to hand down to my girls, because they also love them. It also makes about 10 to 12 dozen cookies so plenty so share with everyone or great for a cookie swap for the holidays.
