Soft Chocolate Cookies
April 08, 2010

Oh my. I can see already that Hubs is gonna eat himself sick on these (his gauge as to how good a cookie is) and my jeans will become just a little tighter. I had a plan for these cookies from the get-go and they fit what I had in mind PERFECTLY. I had leftover buttercream frosting from something else I made and since I had taken the time to tint it in a variety of colors I hated to just toss it (or mix it all together, add cocoa and make it chocolate frosting, a good "save" for this situation). I wanted to make a sandwich cookie but I needed something soft so the frosting wouldn't just squish out. I made the dough exactly as the recipe directed, then chilled it for an hour or so till somewhat firm. Rolled it into 1" balls, being very careful to make them all the same size. I flattened them just slightly and they baked perfectly at 8 minutes. These are soft, buttery and chocolatey, exquisitely homey and old-fashioned good. Great on their own, no doubt about it....but filling them with almond buttercream? There are just no words. Excellent cookie, recipe perfect as written.
