Hi Everyone,
I just made of patch of one of my families favorite cookies. When my entire family is together, I make at least five dozens of these chocolate tastes of heaven and they disappear before the weekend is over. The only trick is to make sure you don't over cook them. I hope you enjoy them as much my family does.

  1. This looks pretty yummy. I'm a chocolate/cookie fan myself. I also love Josh Groban...he's just the best. Also Kenny G and Buble. Great minds think alike. :-) I'm popping in from the a-z, I think you are number 900 something. Ten more days to go and I'm only halfway thought the list! I, too, can relate to staying home w/ my kids. I LOVED it. I went to college when my youngest was in 2nd grade. I still wish I was home w/ my kids. They were the best years of my life. You did the right thing!! Visit me, if you'd like:
