Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

There’s an extra secret ingredient in this recipe.  That may be an exaggeration, but I’ve never seen it in another recipe.  I feel like it’s “cheating” a bit, akin to baking a cake from a mix and calling it your own.  Nevertheless, I do take credit for these delicious cookies every time I bring them somewhere – and they’re typically a hit!
