Comments

Yes, Daniel , Freighofer's cookies recipie has changed.
The original cookie dough was less sweet, and they used dark/ or semisweet chips. Entemen's original choc-chip cookies with the dark choc chips are the most like the original cookies. For a while Freighofer sold both. They just sell the the new recipie now.
