100% amazing!!! A truly, old fashioned, delicious cookie. Thank you! My family and friends loved them. The only cookie tray left empty. "We beat the chocolate chip cookies!!!"

The batter was flawless, however I recommend NOT using Angus Beef hot dogs.

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy
Being from Charleston, SC...I tip my hat to you. I used veg. oil instead of lard, however the results were amazing. Very tender, not chewy, delicious!! Thank you for sharing.
