A coworker makes these for our cookie exchange and they are great. You can also sprinkle colored sugar on the tops before baking.

Not bad cookies. I'm not a big fan of using mixes but I was low on butter. Added white chocolate chips to fancy up a bit.

These cookies were AMAZING! I don't even like cookies. Well, that is, MOST cookies. These were great. I followed the recipe to a tee, and they were perfect. Just make sure you don't touch them for at least five minutes after they come out of the oven. They taste a lot like cookie dough, which is great! (and I mean, come on. Who doesn't like cookie dough?)

Thanks for posting Marie!
