Chocolate Butter Cookies

Today I went through my recipes and pulled those that I want to bake in the coming weeks. Lucky for me, Mike will take all of my finished products to work with him — otherwise I think I’d gain 20 lbs eating all the yummies! Today I made chocolate butter cookies, because some people from Mike’s work actually requested them. See, that’s how GOOD these things are. And it’s a Paula Deen recipe — and while her southern accent drives me nuts sometimes, I do enjoy her more-butter-is-better philosophy. ;)

Roll chilled batter into tablespoon-sized balls and roll them in powdered sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.

    ok annie. i made these for xmas for people and made WAY to many, which you know. what you dont know is that we froze the dough, have been cooking it every week for a while now and they just get better and better. i cook them with a little less heat (like 330-340) and leave em in for 20 min or so… and they are AMAZING and i am not kidding with you about that. somewhere between a cookie, a brownie, and a cake… phenomenal.ReplyCancel
