Double Choc Cookies!

It was decided at Craig’s work to have a Cookie-Cookoff, so he had to find a cookie recipe for his first ever attempt at cookies. He found this one in the Delicious Magazine, April 2011. Although it didn’t win the Cookie-Cookoff, it was certainly appreciated (and was noted as being the most dense of the cookies.) They were slightly too hard, next time we’ll take them out a couple of minutes sooner.
