I promised you a butter laden recipe and I’m a woman of my word.
I whipped these up as a birthday gift to one of my friends. If I know anything about my friend, she loves anything with chocolate, especially brownies and chocolate chip cookies so this was the perfect excuse to bake some cookies!
It literally took every ounce of willpower to not eat these 6 cookies as I was taking the pictures. Instead, I ate just one. Someone has to be the taste tester. It’s a tough job.
Once again, I only baked enough for my friend’s gift and froze the rest of the dough. Let’s see how long this dough will last in the freezer. p.s. I am very much in love my new mixer.
