On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . . eight chocolate cream filled cookies perfect for dunking in milk! And eight won’t be enough, trust us. These are a perfect imitation of one of America’s favorite cookies, only homemade so you can make them any size you want.

These cookies will spread when baking. The ones pictured were made with about a tablespoon of dough per cookie and flattened out--and they continued to spread during baking. If you want smaller cookies, just use less dough.
