When making cookies I would rather just eat the dough and not even bake the cookies...it's that bad. Obsessed...that is a good word that I would use to describe how I feel about this recipe. I love these little things. Trust me when I say "they are amazing!!!!!" I made these last Christmas for the first time and it was officially "LOVE AT FIRST BITE!" I kid you not, if you haven't made these before..do so..now! I know what you are thinking that they couldn't possibly be that good, but they are. ;) I am a huge cookie dough fan so this is perfect for those that love cookie dough like me.
