Good Cookies for Challenging Times

One of my projects: find and refine the recipe for the cookies Dad sent me when I lived in the dorm. They were moist, nicely chewy, and almost indestructible. 

I know that butter–real live almost out of the cow butter– will be used. Dad was part of the generation brainwashed into thinking that margarine was better, so we’ll swap that out for real butter. Spelt flour instead of wheat, too. 

Chocolate chips will be included. I’m thinking dried cherries instead of raisins. That should elevate it a few notches. Walnuts. Yes. Walnuts. 

Maybe a drizzle of melted bittersweet chocolate over the top? Yes, please. 

Stay tuned….
