I was going to save these for the last day of October because they are, in my opinion, the best cookies ever, but five days into our 31 day journey and I just couldn't wait any more. These cookies are to-die-for good. Melt-in-your-mouth and leave-you-reaching-for-more good. Gone-in-hours good. Seriously. I need to make another batch, because this one vanished in less than a day.
This recipe is adapted from a version featured on my very favorite cooking show on PBS, America's Test Kitchen.
