I have always loved sugar cookies, even though they are often made by default, to balance out a plate of Christmas cookies or to feed a class of sugar-crazed little ones. Maybe I’m just a kid at heart because I go crazy for anything covered in a thick layer of buttercream frosting too.
These chocolate cookies, however, are different. For one thing (and I can’t believe I am saying this) they don’t need the frosting. They are perfectly amazing all on their own— soft and chocolaty.
Don’t be fooled by their humble appearance. I sent a bunch of these with my husband to work to get them out of my reach and apparently it took a while for people to catch on that it was in their best interest to grab a few.
I did the same thing. I baked the cookies one day but ran out of time to frost, so I put them in a tupperware and ignored them for almost 24 hours. That’s probably a good thing, otherwise I’m not sure any of those cookies would have lasted that long.
I decided to go ahead and frost some cookies, because I wanted to dress them up for Valentine’s day and because I wanted to give royal icing a try. It turns out that working with royal icing isn’t all that easy, so please ignore my glaring imperfections. It was fun though and now I can report that you can’t go wrong with these cookies. Frosted or not, they are wonderful!
