If you are thinking these are gingerbread cookies, then you are wrong! I didn't have any molasses on hand so I figured I'd try something different this season.

These are soft chocolatey roll-out cookies. And they were a hit at gatherings. Many folks mentioned that they were very soft, great texture and a nice surprise from the usual gingerbread. Yummy! They were gone... in not time :)

I want to wish you all Happy Holidays! May you celebrate with food and drink with all your friends and family!
