From Cooking Light - These easy drop cookies are crisp on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside. Chocolate minichips disperse better in the batter, but you can use regular chips. Directions say to line baking sheets with parchment paper, but I bake mine on a baking stone and they always come out great. After 24 hours or so they become hard, but if you put two cookies in the microwave for about 10 seconds, they're soft, warm, and taste fresh-baked.
