Chocolate cookies with lemon curd cream

1_

Hub loves cookies. Zann loves cake. Myself, nothing? I only loves to bake… Baby Ian? Don’t know yet. Hah. Well I baked these cookies for fun, cos I craving for chocolate again. I used lemon to make the lemon curd cream cheese frosting. Chocolate cookies with lemony cream, I love this combo although I am not a cookie person. Baby Ian woke up again when I  did these cookies halfway. So stressed to shape them and pipe the cream out, when baby was crying for me.
