Who better than the Queen of Butter to kick off FoodNetwork.com’s annual cookie party, y’all? Paula Deen’s Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies are chocolate-kissed snowballs that’ll melt in your mouth faster than you can say, “Hand me another one!”–which believe me, you will.

Dusted with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, they’re rich, sumptuous and a dessert unto themselves, no ice cream needed. But if you wanted to add a scoop….
