Magic In The Middle Cookies

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 time list.

Bet they’ll go on yours, too.
