I started following @sarah_keiffer on Instagram and her "Vanilla Bean Blog." I searched her website for a recipe for chocolate sugar cookies and was able to find one that truly is outstanding.
Sarah suggest measuring them out as 2 tablespoonfuls, but they come out quite large. A tablespoon yielded a more desirable size for me.
