Oh! My! Gosh! I mean seriously! I think I should rename these cookies to Danger Will Robinson Cookies. They’re sooo delicious they are truly dangerous. They are soft, moist, chewy, and way yummy! I stashed mine in the back of the freezer hoping to forget about them for a bit. No chance and they’re even fabulous frozen. You have to try these. They have officially gone on my favorite foods of all times list. Bet they’ll go on yours, too.
