This week has been hectic. Our potluck is tomorrow at work so I need to get up bright and early to bake some cookies (for our 2nd annual cookie competition) and make crab dip! Wish me luck:-).
This cookie got rave reviews from family and co-workers. They are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside with a perfect deep chocolate flavor. The confectioners sugar not only looks pretty but adds a subtle sugar flavor that tastes wonderful against the fudgy chocolate cookie. This would have been a great entry for the competition, however, since I already brought them in to work I need to make something different.
