Chocolate Sundae Cookies

Didi Dalaba


It's cookie time!!! There is just something truly magical about the holidays and cookies. I really can't explain it. The lights are hung, the tree is decorated, the presents are wrapped, (well, getting there), the house looks beautiful... but it's not the holidays until there are cookies!!
