Chocolate Sugar Cookies
As I've mentioned many times, the holiday months are my favorites for baking yummy treats. A few years back, the girls and I were doing a treat series called 52 Treats. I found after the weather started warming, I was tiring of baking (especially since our old kitchen would get REALLY hot). Maybe baking really is just a seasonal thing for me, but I find it relaxing and it's a great way to spend quality time with the girls. Last night, Hope and I made a Shelton house favorite-- chocolate sugar cookies! We actually call these "chocolate pudding cookies" sometimes because they are so chocolaty and salty at the same time. I originally found this recipe in a Martha Stewart magazine, but we've tweaked it a bit over the years and I thought I'd share our version.
Also, I think it's charming how finger smudged our recipe cards have gotten over the years. You know a really good recipe when it looks like it's been used many, many times.
Feel free to print out the recipe card. Happy baking friends!
