Chocolate-Chip Cheesecake Fantasies
I clipped the recipe from a magazine years ago, and made a note that they were from a book called Cookies by Natalie Haughton. I've never actually seen the book, but it looks like Amazon.com has. Does anyone out there have this book? It sounds like a good one. I can certainly vouch for this recipe.

1/3 c. butter, melted
