My sisters and I all own the Nestle Toll House Best Loved Cookies cookbook which we affectionately call "The Cookie Book". We are constantly calling each other when we have tried a new recipe in it and telling each other you MUST try this recipe. Their Double Chocolate Dream Cookies are just one of the recipe we all love. But when I tried adapting it I failed MISERABLY and was so sad since my daughter LOVES these cookies. Enter my sister whose daughter was diagnosed with Celiacs a year ago. I told her my troubles and asked her to give it a try and, voile, success. So this recipe is curtesy of her, thanks! And I am not going to reveal how much dough I ate (DON'T DO THIS, IT IS BAD AND YOU MIGHT GET SICK!) while cooking these or how many I snitched before our regular ones were done.
