Thin and Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies for the Chocolate Mocha Icebox Cake that I made for my husbands birthday here.  I had about half the batch leftover and my husband and daughter polished them off pretty quickly.  I tend to be more of a chewy cookie person myself but I have to admit that these little babies were quite tasty.

They are exactly as the name says, thin and crisp.  They have a nice buttery flavor and are perfect dunked into a nice cold glass of milk.

Even though I used these to go inside another dessert I would absolutely make them again for a party or just to have around the house.  They are the perfect crispy chocolate chip cookie.

Look at how thin they are!
