Cocoa Cookies With Cocoa Glaze

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

A soft chocolate cookie. Adapted from The Pioneer Lady's Country Christmas. You may get more than 3 dozen; it depends on how big you make them. I usually leave out the cinnamon. You may also use less salt.

Made these cookies up the other day, & they got passed around every which way ~ Some right here for us to enjoy, some went to work to be shared by my other half, & some went to one of my other half's weekly meetings! Apparently thoroughly appreciated by everyone, too, & definitely by us here at home! ABsolutely great tasting cookies, & they weren't even made with chocolate chips or raisins! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
