Seeing as it was a new recipe to me, and just because I wanted to make sure it was alright to shar with all my lovely readers in the raw, I tried the dough. Repeatedly. Like over and over. If you are one of those people with an iron will who only ever eats the cooked and finished product, then if you think the cookies are addictive, you should break your own mould and try the dough. There would've been a good few more cookies if it weren't so good. Needless to say, I had a very late lunch that day after the number of bits I snaffled. With and without the chocolate in. AND I'M NOT EVEN SORRY.
