Chocolate Cookie Favors

This is a variation of the recipe that I used in the OSSAS tasting category last year (2005) — The original recipe had ginger in them — but I”ve made them both ways – These are rich, dense chocolate cookies that are great for cut outs. If you want Chocolate Ginger bread — add 1 tablespoon of ginger..
