Author Notes

The recipe became too expensive to reproduce by the Miami Bake Shoppe in Southfield, Michigan back in the late 1960s and about 20 years ago I found the recipe tucked in a used cookbook I purchased. This is the most delicate chocolate chip cookie known to mankind, no, really it is exceptional and makes a wonderful gift! —Denay
