This is the perfect cookie for any occasion! Crispy on the edges but soft and chewy in the middle. Add the smooth chocolatey goodness in the form of frosting on top as well as a glass of milk on the side and you will be reminded of the good ole days when Grannie cut you a big piece of her homemade chocolate sheet cake! Instant stress-relief!
