I’m not much of a dessert person, but occasionally I get a craving for a really good cookie. One that’s chewy and chocolatey! The only problem is that every recipe makes about 50 cookies, when I just want one. Most of the extras got eaten by my roommate, my boyfriend and I gave a plate to my neighbor downstairs who had been sick. I have to admit, I did eat more than one this time around. They were that good. I added a bit of cinnamon into these, which turned out to be a fabulous choice. I personally think they’re best right out of the oven or heated up in the microwave. I like it when the chocolate is still melty. Plus the heat makes them chewier. I also don’t like milk, but I do get a craving for it when I have cookies. Next time someone asks me to bring dessert to a party, you can bet these will be the recipe I pull out. Santa, you’ll be getting these too. What’s your favorite type of cookie?
