    Irwin Family Favorites's Note:

    Great Grandma Wolcott and Aunt Grace would make these delicious frosted cookies. They are like a chocolate ginger bread cookie and a cup of milk tops them off. I make them for Christmas to share with family and friends, and usually double the recipe.

      I made just a third of this recipe, more as an expirement than anything else, & it was most successful! Not only are these great tasting cookies, but the recipe is well worth keeping around so I can make more during the winter holidays! THESE CHOCOLATE TASTIES ARE EXCEPTIONAL! Thanks for a great keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
