"These were one cookie that my gram used to make that I loved! They are just so chocolately and sweet. Dipped in confectionary sugar makes them look so pretty, as the cookies crack while cooking. These are MMMmmmmmmm GOOD! This is a great addition to a holiday cookie tray, or when your craving something sweet and chocolate! Note: These cookies are chewy, chocolately and delicious. If you overcook them they will be crunchy when you bite into them, so don't overbake them!"

My family loves them and we take turns making them every year to keep our grammie's cookie tradition. We love them so much. This year it was my turn to make them and they came out so good!

These are another of our family favorites and I enjoyed making them with my daughter. I rolled out the balls and she dipped them in the powdered sugar. They remind me of brownies, chocolatey and chewy and so yummy!

These taste a lot like brownies so I couldn't resist making them for my cookie trays. I used walnuts this time but next time I might use pecans. Any nut will do!
