These turned out great!! They stay soft and oh so yummy in the middle, and the surprise chocolate chips just add to the sweetness. This recipe only yielded about 16 cookies, but it was worth it! I had left over buttercream and used that for the frosting, rather than the icing the recipe called for. These cookies will be made for many occasions throughout the year!
