The first time I made this dessert was for a mixed bunch of folks (dietarily, that is.) Since then, it's become my go-to dessert any time I need to appeal to a large mix of people: adult, kid, vegan, lactose-intolerant alike... this cookie is the ultimate people pleaser. They're simple, crunchy with a soft middle, and never fail to induce salivating from guests.

2 dozen cookies
