HELP! Drop Cookie recipe from Colonial Bakery in Lavallette, NJ

I am looking for the recipe of a cookie that we always used to buy at Colonial Bakery, located in Lavallette, NJ. It was part of our traditional "summer down the shore" favorite eats. It is a round cookie with a dollop of chocolate on top. I think they were called drop cookies. Maybe we just made that name up. IDK. My step-daughter went to Seaside Park, NJ for a vacation in August & as a surprise she brought me back some cookies...drop cookies...smiley face cookies...pure heaven. We now live in Myrtle Beach, SC & the concept of a real bakery has not taken hold here. I would love to find this recipe & surprise everyone at Christmas with their favorite Childhood Cookie. The smiley face cookies are covered in yellow sprinkles with chocolate eyes & mouth. The chocolate is soft when you bite into it. The cookie has the perfect texture..crispy outside & soft inside. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Here's a photo to help spark your memory!
