Easy, delicious and as Yael says, a standby for years. The chocolate makes it tremedous. Usually these are the first to be gone.

I've been making these as part of my Christmas cookie roundup for years, and this one's a keeper. Simple to make, and they melt in your mouth. One of my favorite cookies ever.

This gets raves everywhere I bring them and they are my personal favorite Christmas cookie for the past 15 years. They also freeze well. I toss them again in confectioners sugar before serving or gifting.
