Inside-Out Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I was pregnant, I made a lot of cookies.  A lot.  But when we returned from the hospital with our son, these were the cookies I had at home waiting to be eaten.  I have had a special fondness for them ever since.

It's been years since I've made this recipe, but I finally did again last weekend and they are just as chewy, soft, and chocolaty as I remember them.  The chocolate cookies with the white chocolate chips is fantastic, but adding semi-sweet chocolate chips as well?  Perfect.
