    Judy from Hawaii's Note:

    I found this recipe on the Land O'Lakes Butter Website & made some for Christmas last year. They were the first to dissapear from each platter & the ones that got the most requests for recipes. Place the melted chocolate into a ziplock bag & cut off a tiny corner. Use this to drizzle the chocolate over the cookies.

      I made these last year at holiday time (also saw in a Land O' Lakes ad) and they were really yummy as well as beautiful to look at! I have added them to my holiday baking list.

      These cookies are very good however a wee bit rich. I think I would like to try them next time without the chocolate chips.
