Chocolate Cookies

These are my absolute favorite chocolate cut out cookies. They taste like Oreos. I can't wait to make some more with some filling and make a batch of homemade Oreos for my friends and family. But beware, they are addictive!!!

I got the recipe and black cocoa from All In One Bake Shop in Austin. Love that place!!
