Everyone has a food that is hard to resist. Mine is cookies. It doesn’t really matter what kind I love them. The problem is that I can’t usually stop with just one, and this
“Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie”
recipe is no different. It has two of my favorite ingredients, CHOCOLATE and NUTS. Oh,ya!!
They have cake like softness with a little crispness around the bottom edge and full of chocolaty goodness.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk

These pretty cookies are always a hit at a party or just as a thank you to your neighbor.
