I wish I could describe it. If you check there are some recipes out there, although I couldn't tell you which one is best. I just remembered these cookies are a NYC thing. I had brought some with me for my friend's mom in FL when I visited for that reason along with black and white cookies.

Here are some good recipes if you want to try to make them yourself. Otherwise I will be happy to mail you a batch:

Most supermarkets carry them. They aren't usually displayed very prominently, though.

If your supermarket doesn't have them, try Amazon.com.

I like a crisp cookie. Soft cookies are too much like cake and if I'm going to use up my caloric allotment, I'll have the cake.

I make chocolate chip cookies, recipe on the choc chip package and they come out crunchy.

Last year, I found a package of waffle cookies with a caramel filling. You sit the cookie on top of your cup of hot beverage and the caramel softens. O.M.G. I hope I can find them again this year so I can give them to me for Christmas.

It's a toss up between fig newtons and Oreos.

I totally forgot about one of my favorites: Frango Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Baraona's Bakery in Cleveland has seven layer cookies that are incredible. Not really a 'traditional' cookie but a cookie nonetheless. They were always my grandpa's favorite.

I also like Samoas (and the knockoff versions in grocery stores), homemade sugar cookies (my mom's recipe), and warm, chewy oatmeal raisin.

I will eat almost any cookie, though. :P

I've been thinking and thinking about this. I think that I'm giving this too much thought.
I guess that it's a Toll House type cookie. The variety of nut and type of chocolate that I use changes from batch to batch but it's still essentially a chocolate chip/chunk cookie with nuts. I like when they're a bit crisp around the edge and still a little chewy in the middle.
