    These cookies are very rich and very good. They are not hard to make, just time consuming, but they are worth it. The original recipe came from VeryBestBaking.

      I tried these for my christmas platters this year and they were the hit with everyone! I can not believe that this recipe has not been rated yet!! The only reason I can think of is they are more of a bar than a cookie. It does seem like a lot of ingredients but it makes a huge pan that will treat a lot of people. I will be making these again and again and not just for the holidays. I can't wait to take these to church and for bake sales. Thanks for a great recipe!!!
