Double Dark Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Double Dark Chocolate Cookies

For a while I’ve been wanting to adjust the recipe I use for chocolate skillet brownies, to make cookies.

The coast during the winter is beautiful. The colors are so serene, with soothing tones, and often a crispness in the air that you don’t get around here in South Carolina during the summer. As I was glancing through our travel photos, I ran across these photos I posted when I wrote about Botany Bay last year.
