"I love these cookies. A friend shared a version of the recipe with me back in graduate school and they fast became favorites, mostly because they are so incredibly good, but also because they are made entirely with pantry ingredients (great for spur-of-the-moment cookie baking).The mayonnaise takes the place of both eggs and oil, producing a delicate crunch. And if you're wondering about the name: it rhymes with the name of a brand of famous chocolate chip cookies popular in the 1980s" - New Jersey Family
