I love cookies and adore making them. Most of all I love to eat them.
For me, the perfect cookie is always crispy, very buttery, not too sweet, has a hint of salt, and lots of vanilla flavor. My cookies are very crisp and have a real snap when you bite into them. I always decorate cookies with chocolate as I am not a lover of royal icing and food coloring.
The important thing to know is that you must temper the chocolate. You can use this technique for decorating your own favorite cookie recipes.
