When I first met my husband, he invited me to his yearly family reunion. His mother has a very LARGE family with 3 girls and 5 boys. Each one of them usually brings a desert to the gathering and I was immediately addicted to these cookies his aunt makes every year.

These cookies are AMAZING and have all of my favorite flavors of chocolate, cookie dough and nuts. I literally walk by the desert table 50 times grabbing one of these cookies because they are so addicting. I promise when you make these, everyone will LOVE them!
