Place chunks on cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes for large cookies. 8-10 minutes for bite size. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove and cool on rack. For moist
cookies store in airtight container after cooling 5-10 minutes. Each log makes approximately 2 dozen large or 5 dozen bite-size cookies.
