If you're going to eat cookies, they should be good cookies. These are great cookies. So light, they almost fall apart, and decadently chocolate rich with a touch of salt. They are not my cookies, however. They are the work of Dorie Greenspan. If you like them, you should go buy her awesome cookie book. https://goo.gl/Kh9hym
