From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Despite an ingredient list that contains everything but the kitchen sink, these drop cookies are extremely easy to make and I think you will find them to be a real crowd pleaser. I found the recipe in Taste of Home magazine and while I have made no changes to it, due to the Silver Fox's penchant for crisp cookies, I must admit that I bake the cookies for a longer period of time than suggested in the directions below. Left to my druthers, I'd stick with the program and enjoy a moist and eminently chewable cookie, but for the sake of my audience I bake the cookies for a full 13 minutes, or until their edges begin to brown. The cookies, soft or crisp, are great keepers, and if you'd prefer not to bake the entire batch at one time, the dough can be frozen. This is a nice, if somewhat expensive, cookie that I suspect you and your family will thoroughly enjoy. Here is how they are made.
