Mustard Spiced Chocolate Cookies Recipe

When  National Mustard Spiced Chocolate Cookies Recipe Month rolls around I’m excited to see all the recipes being shared on social media. There are alot of different spice ingredients in cookies I would have NEVER dreamed of.  Today’s cookie recipe features mustard. When most people think of mustard they think  hot dogs or pretzels. Adding mustard to cookies results in a mouthwatering dessert filled with complex flavors.
