Recipe Notes

These cookies are soft and decadent with the Chocolate ganache added. You can omit the chocolate and add peanut butter or a different topping if you prefer. I loved the way this recipe came together. You can always add more butter to your chocolate to thin it out. Add sprinkles or festive topping to the cookies for a Christmas flare. I made these with my son for his school heritage project and I will be surely passing this recipe down.
