Chocolate Butter Cookies

Top Review by HeavenlyBliss19

I made these this morning, and they were a huge hit at my house! Cut them out with Mickey Mouse shaped cutters, and my daughter thinks I'm a magic cookie-makin' machine! So yummy! But, for anyone who wants to use a cookie cutter with this recipe, keep extra flour on hand for the cutter, your hands, and the dough - otherwise, it doesn't work out.
