I originally posted this recipe in 2009 and have made it countless times since then. When I was baking them again recently with my daughter and grandson, my daughter looked at the pictures on the post and said I should update this post with new pictures. So I did.

Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod posted this scrumptious cookie recipe on her blog in 2008. She’s kind of the cookie queen. It is a nice blend of sweet and tart.

I like to add whole wheat pastry flour to boost the nutrition just a bit. I also like to chill the dough for 30 minutes when I have the time. King Arthur Flour has a good article on why you should be chilling your cookie dough.

If you haven’t tried this one yet, you really should!
