These cookies have only 3 ingredients. The recipe came from Taste of Home magazine. These would be perfect for a quick cookie to make for those holiday cookie exchanges. It uses individualized cookie dough.

These are excellent and easy cookies and the presentation is beautiful. I have a similar recipe that just uses peanut butter cups and peanut butter cookie dough, but this recipe takes this type of cookie to the next level. I baked at 350* because I already had something in the oven at that temp, so I only left them in for 9 minutes or so. So easy and so many variations with this one! Thanks!
