These cookies are amazing. The spices and chocolate go very well together!! These are very easy cookies to make, and I usually have most of the ingredients on hand. Enjoy

I liked this recipe but did make some changes. I added more cocoa powder and also added cinnamon and cloves to up the spice factor. In reading the other review I noticed they tended to be dry so I used a whole egg instead of just the yolk and that seemed to work, they ended up tasty, soft and chewy.
