My friend Kat introduced me to this recipe and we had a fun time baking them together. Interestingly enough, this recipe is from Laura Bush. Back when Al Gore and George W. Bush were running for President, some family magazine had a cookie competition where Laura Bush and Tipper Gore each submitted a cookie recipe and the readers voted for the winner. Apparently Laura Bush won with this recipe by a landslide.
