While they were baking, the smell of the spices and chocolate traveled throughout the house and I wish I could have encapsulated it into a candle. It was hard not to eat those cookies straight out of the oven but two reasons why you should wait a little: the cookies do need to rest on the baking tray for at least 10 minutes as the residual heat helps to finish the cooking process, and you definitely do not want to burn your mouth on the molten chocolate chunks.
If you love both gingerbread biscuits and chocolate chip cookies, this is a perfect recipe to make for the holidays this year.
