Recipe by QueenBee49444
While on vacation this summer I read the book "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder" by Joanne Fluke. The author included several cookie recipes throughout the book. I want to pass this book on to my partner in the Used Media Swap on Zaar so I am posting the recipe here to try later. If you get a chance to make the cookies before me, please post a review to let us know how good they are. The author did not indicate the serving size so I guessed. I will update when I know exact serving sizes. Please note: Preparation time listed does not include dough chilling time.

- Drop the balls into the bowl of confectioners' sugar & roll them around until they are covered.
- If dough gets too warm, stick it back into the fridge until you can handle it again.
- Place the balls on a cookie sheet (12 to a standard sheet works best).
- Do not flatten - they will flatten as they bake.
