I'm always on the lookout for a good cookie. These are better than good - they're great! They are crispy outside, chewy inside, chocolatey and with just a hint of cinnamon. They also have that "gritty" texture that can be found in many of the cookies from Mexican bakeries. I found this recipe in "Divine Cuisine" compiled by the Episcopal Churchwomen of St. Paul's Church in DeKalb, Illinois, where my in-laws used to attend. They were submitted by Helen Bishop. Yum!!
