It is that time of year-all kinds of cookies and goodies are everywhere. Making homemade is always better and it doesn’t have to be difficult. I won’t lie…these take a little time but they are not difficult and are so worth it!! The cookie is crispy and delicious on its own, but add the dark chocolate and it is amazing!! These are great to give to neighbors, take to a party, or eat yourself at home.
