Author Notes

While searching for lactation cookies to make my wife, the recipes I found always seemed bland, a bad combination or too strong tasting. I thought about combining the main ingredients needed for lactation cookies with a really good chocolate chip cookie. That's when I stumbled upon Jacques Torres' chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Taking from his recipe and modifying it to suite our taste, I'm really happy about the results and my wife loves them! —Tim Maiura
