Soft Chocolate Cookies from @TinaKashian1


Hello from TINA KASHIAN! I have a sweet tooth, especially for chocolate. I baked these cookies with my two daughters during the holidays, and they came out quite tasty. They are not overly sweet and are a perfect dessert. They are also good as a morning treat with a cup of coffee or tea. 


1 cup shortening

2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

3 squares (3 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted

2 eggs

2 ½ cups flour

1 cup buttermilk

confectioners' sugar (optional)


Cream shortening with the brown sugar. 


Microwave 3 squares (3 ounces) of unsweetened chocolate until melted.
