    I don't know if this is the recipe that your friend was looking for, but this looks great and I think I will make it. I had been wondering what to do with all that dark corn syrup!

    I have never baked anything, except premade cookie dough. But, If I had enough milk I could eat all the peanut butter cookies in the world. I will try this recipe for sure!! Thanks!
