About three years ago, I found an amazing cookie recipe in a weekly flyer from Bulk Barn. I immediately went online and saved a PDF of the recipe for future use. Ever since then, around Valentine’s Day, I bake these delicious chocolate cookies with homemade cream cheese frosting for my family. Well, last week, I was telling someone about how incredible these cookies taste, and wanted to send them a link to the recipe online, when lo and behold, I discovered the recipe is nowhere to be found!! The page had expired. Oh no! Now how do I pin it on Pinterest with no link?!?! Soooooo … I decided to post this recipe online for all those cookie lovers out there. You’re welcome.
I have no idea who originated the recipe, but whoever you are, you are the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this sweet treat!
