I may be slightly biased towards these cookies because I grew up with them, but they are simply amazing! If you don’t believe me, I urge you to try them for yourself. They are a simple cookie with melted milk chocolate spread on top. Whenever I’m in the mood for something homemade and delicious that takes no time at all, this is what I make.
My grandma would make these cookies for my mom when she was little, and my mom would do that for my family. When I first made these on my own after my mom passed away, the smell (and taste of course! hehe) of the dough brought back memories of me helping her make these cookies when I was growing up.
I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as my family does, and maybe you can start your own memories with your family with them!
