These super yummy cookies are a tradition in my family. My mom made them for years, and now it's my turn. They are VERY EASY to make.

These cookies are yummy! I had a little trouble with the making of them but I got it worked out: I added about 1/2 cup more flour, then let the "dough" sit and cool a while. I then made balls of dough and flattened them out, then baked them. I had to let them cool for longer than 30 seconds to be able to roll them. Once I got the hang of it they were very easy! The dip in the melted chocolate really adds a nice touch! Thanks for posting!
