I found in and they are very tasty. I didn't make the frosting but the original recipe calls for it.

FANTASTIC! I was pressed for time, so I took reviewer Color Caurd Mom's suggestion and made this into bar cookies (10"x15" pan, 20 minutes). They came out perfect! I haven't frosted them yet, just been diving into the plain bars... I can only imagine how heavenly they'll be when I get around to making the frosting, though they don't really need it. Next time, I may use a bit less sugar as they were a little sweet for my taste, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing!!

Everyone at work LOVED these cookies. One of the bosses even said I can make them every day - talk about job security! LOL Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Adding this to say, I didn't have time to make into cookies this morning, so I put it in a 10 x 15 inch pan and baked for 20 minutes. Allowed it to cool and then frosted. Absolutely WONDERFUL!!

I wish my battery wasn't dead on the camera. I'd have loved to take a picture of these. I made them with the frosting and the family ate them up. Kind of like mini carrot cake cookies. Really cool and different. I'm adding these to my Christmas tray.
