Lactation Cookies, Part Two

Lactation Cookies
Now these are what lactation cookies should taste like: like regular chocolate chip cookies. I really liked the Oatmeal Lactation Cookies I made, but I was the only one. Alex hated them and Cati just liked to eat the chocolate chips. These cookies, on the other hand, tasted like a healthier chocolate chip cookie and everyone enjoyed them. There's still nothing like a regular chocolate chip cookie, but this is a good alternative.
