FUN MEMORY Growing up, my mom was always known for her cookie baking abilities.  Christmas 2007 was my first Christmas as a home owner.  I wanted to create my own holiday cookie platter and these were one of the first cookies I made!  Very easy to make.  One batch makes several dozen!

Tip #1:  If you are a fan of chocolate or brownies, you will definitely be a fan of these cookies.

Tip #2:  Dough will be very “sticky” to work with prior to chilling in refrigerator. 

Tip #3:  Definitely invest in a cookie scoop!  Saves you from rolling out cookies to a particular size!  The cookie scoop definitely comes in handy since the dough can be sticky to work with.

What is a cookie scoop?Cookie Scoops

It’s a great baking tool for many reasons!  It allows you to get consistently sized cookies each time.  Simply scoop up cookie dough, squeeze and release.  Cookies that are uniform in size will bake more evenly.

Offered in 3 sizes:  small, medium, and large.  Easy to clean and dishwasher safe!  Ranges from $13-$15.

Tip #4:  Flavor gets even better 1-2 days after baking.

Tip #5:  Cookies can be kept in a covered tupperware container.  Place a sheet of wax paper in between layers cookies within the container.
