CRISP CHOCOLATE COOKIES RECIPE

Crisp Chocolate Cookies Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot,com

I always love a simple dessert to go with my cuppa like this Crisp Chocolate  Cookies,

This recipe contains least butter or oil yet they turned out crispy but soft inside.

You can use brown sugar instead of white sugar.   It yields a soft and sticky dough so it requires chilling it for 1 - 2 hours.  Once it became firm,  much easier to  shape them.

It is important to place  Crisp Chocolate Cookies at least 2 inches apart on greased  baking sheet. They really spread and become thinner so adjust the thickness  you want them to be..
