I have a wonderful cookie recipe that I will share later today when I get out to the kitchen to dig it out. It won Best in Show at a special chocolate contest at our county fair years ago. It's not original, I think I got it off the Choc-bake (premelted baking chocolate) package.

1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix in corn syrup and Nestle choc-bake. Blend in flour mixture. Shape into balls, using 1 level measuring tablespoonful dough for each.
