This is a very tasty chocolate sugar cookie. I made 3 dozen heart shape cookies and decorated them with red icing. The dough was easy to handle if you follow the instructions to chill it for 1 - 2 hours. Since I wanted to ice this cookie,I didn't sprinkle my pastry cloth with sugar, but used just "a little" flour. I will use this recipe again. It's a great cookie with icing as well.

Really easy recipe; tasty and not too sweet. Perfect for decorating with icing or eating as is. Our family says "thumbs up!"

This dough is easy to make, and to handle. Wrap it up in small individual segments to chill, and it will handle better. It has a mild chocolate flavor. I didn't add any sugar on top, instead dipping the cookies in tempered chocolate and they were perfect - not too sweet or dry or crunchy.
