Chocolate Cookies

Jennifer S


I put these together and left them in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks. Decided to see if the dough was still good. After baking my grand kids ate them without letting me ice them or fill them. They are that good. A deep chocolate flavor, some I made thin and crisp and some a little thicker and chewy. I didn't need anything more to sweeten them. I do use caster sugar in my baking and that disolves quickly and completely, not grainy. Regular white sugar works too.
