Grammie Bea's Chocolate Crackle Cookies

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 8 mins

These were one cookie that my gram used to make that I loved! They are just so chocolately and sweet. Dipped in confectionary sugar makes them look so pretty, as the cookies crack while cooking. These are MMMmmmmmmm m GOOD! This is a great addition to a holiday cookie tray, or when your craving something sweet and chocolate! Please Note: These cookies are chewy, chocolately and delicious! If you overcook them they will be crunchy when you bite into them, so don't overbake them!

Wonderful cookies!! I added Hershey candy cane kisses to the top of each cookie when i took them out of the oven. Really nice cookie for the Christmas cookie trays.
