I have a question--Do you put salt in your cookie dough? In your directions you mention salt but not in the ingredients. hayhodge@hotmail.com

Great question. I ALWAYS add salt to my baked goods, I find that it really enhances the flavor, even just a little bit. Thanks for pointing out the problem (I am constantly going through my recipes for this very reason and appreciate the help and feedback)! I've updated the recipe.
