Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies With Raspberry Frosting

25 Nov

As someone who doesn’t have a car, I often barter for help – you know, drive me to the grocery store and I’ll cook you dinner, or pick something up from Home Depot and I’ll trade you cookies.

Tonight’s trade was cookies in exchange for help carrying Thanksgiving groceries. I let Will  pick his poison, and this is what he requested!

    This is another of your recipes that I used for our family’s Christmas cookie platters and it is a huge hit! The raspberry icing is just perfect and goes along very well with the very chocolate cookies 🙂 I went about making the raspberry icing in an inefficient way and ended up with about a quart of it 🙂 I added a bit too much milk (c. 1/2 cup) and by the time I got thickening the icing, I had quite a bit of it. So we ended up with LOTS of cookies with raspberry icing (not a bad thing).
