So many similiar recipes I had forgotten about or never got in the first place! I wish I could find a chocolate chip cookie recipe like those from Zebs!! I always thought theirs had a "coconut" taste, so I'll be baking yours soon! Also wishing for the Carmel Corn sold by the DePerno's at Sylvan Beach...plan to try your carmel corn recipe soon as well! Our cassata is similar to your recipe!! Hugs and Kisses Pies-on (cannot speak or spell in Italian, you know what I mean!) Even though I am 100% Italian, I LOVE choc. chip cookies!
