Cookie recipes of every flavor and kind can easily be found in this day and age. However, there is something to be said for recipes that are passed down by family and friends. There’s a connection. You can trust those special recipes will be delicious.

I am trilled to share this particular cookie recipe with you. It has been passed down through the years to me and someday my own daughter will be given the tattered and worn recipe card.

Over 40 years ago, a friend of my mother’s graciously shared this special recipe with her. Who would have thought all those years later, these chocolate cookies would become a treasured family recipe? Everyone’s eyes light up when they are baking!

It’s the feeling and love behind recipes that make them special isn’t it? I hope you will make room in your own hearts and ovens for these delicious cookies.

Step 4: Form dough into 1 Tbsp balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops of cookies are just set and a little hardened to the touch. Be careful to not over bake them. Remove from cookie sheet and allow to fully cool on baking rack and then store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes: The original recipe was made with all-purpose flour, but after experimenting with a gluten-free version I found they retain their same shape, delicious flavor, and soft texture as the original.

If you are lucky enough to have these cookies left for more than a few days, take the remaining cookies and crumble them into a decadent granola and sprinkle over ice cream or yogurt!

    These look delicious and I am going to make them as soon as I can!
    If someone were going to make these for someone extremely sensitive to wheat (celiac disease, for instance) you should use Gluten-Free Oats, and also need to make sure the measuring spoons/cups you use are washed (hadn’t been used to scoop regular flour previously) and freshly washed cookie sheets (or use parchment) to avoid cross-contamination in your kitchen.

      You are so right, Cara! Thank you for your thoughtful and helpful comment. I think that was one of the hardest things for me to get used to when preparing gluten-free food was preventing cross-contamination between knives, cutting boards, and measuring cups. Blessings to you!
