I wanted to try a little something different, and this is a cookie recipe that I haven't tried before. They turn out pretty good. They weren't the best cookies I've ever tried, but they're chocolate, so in my book, you can never go wrong with chocolate. The only thing I really didn't like was, the picture in my cookbook showed that they didn't flatten out so much. So I was a little disappointed with the appearance after they were done baking. The other downfall was that you have to refrigerate the dough for a while, so make these when you have some time on your hands. My kids had a lot of fun make these with me though. Although it does get a little messy, it's a lot of fun for kids to get there hands all sugary and roll the dough balls into the powdered sugar. So this recipe was good, just not great. Hope you enjoy and have a great day!!
