Famous cookies from the Lodge

Today's recipe comes to us from Chef Tyler Chaffer of Bogey's 19th Hole inside the Leland Lodge. They offer it at Bogey's as a special dessert…three warm, melty cookies paired with a pint of cold milk, a snack fit for Santa himself. Be sure to mark your calendar for the upcoming Party In Your Parka event at the Lodge on January 21. It starts at 2 p.m. and features live bands, ice skating, sledding and food/drink specials.
