YOUNGSTOWN — Michelle Winkler experienced a few bumps along the road toward baking the best cookies, but she wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
“I borrowed the recipe, and I’ve been using it for 10 years,” Winkler, of Poland, said, referring to the beginning stages of baking a large batch of rocky road cookies.
