We had two days of cooler weather here in Texas and that always puts me in the mood to bake. My kids like to “help” and it makes the house smell so good too. We couldn’t resist these Best Ever Chocolate Cookies! They are soooo yummy. I’ll also give you an easy icing recipe that you can spread or pipe onto the top of these, but we left ours plain this time. The icing is great to use if you decide to decorate or “fancy-up” your cookies.
