Long Lost Chocolate Cookies

I often ask my Mom for recipes I remember her making when I was a child. This is one of those! I baked cookies a lot with my Mom when I was little – I think it’s a huge part of the reason that I LOVE to bake as an adult, and hopefully the trend will continue in my children. My 3-year-old daughter asks me to bake with her every single day, so I guess it’s safe to say I have a sous chef in the making!

These delicious cookies are soft and very chocolaty, somewhat reminiscent of a brownie in cookie form. The reason the are “Long Lost” is that the recipe for them was found in a book that my Mother had borrowed from the library many years ago. When she made the cookies for the first time, and they didn’t turn out all that well, she returned the book and froze the cookies. Later she discovered that after being frozen the cookies were sensational! So, she went back to find the book, but couldn’t recall which book they had been found in. Finally, cookie lover and cookie recipe were re-united once again, and she still makes them to this day! It’s hard to resist them, and once again, they are super EASY! Need I say more?

Long Lost Double Chocolate Cookies

    I think you should try these with a bit of mint extract thrown in. I remember having amazing chocolate mint brownie cookies, but could never get the recipe right. I think these would be the perfect cookies.
