Chilling Cookies:

For this recipe chilling the cookies is a must. To make these cookies really soft and gooey I add melted chocolate right into the dough.
This will make your cookies perfect but hard to handle without chilling. Once everything is mixed you can cover them and chill for at least 2 hours but you could chill them overnight also.
If properly stored this dough will be good for 2-3 days in the fridge. If you are chilling for more than 2 hours you might want to let them sit on the counter for 15 minutes so they are easier to scoop.
