I halved this recipe and made it today. It was well enjoyed by all of us at home and I plan on making it again on 24th October this year, it being my mom and dad's 25th Wedding Anniversary! Today being the most 'SPECIAL' day of my life(as I met my BF on this day on ICQ on the internet for the very first time at 8pm on today's day, exactly 4 years back), I'd saved this recipe right from the moment you posted it just for TODAY! Thank You, Mirj! This is indeed what I'll give him to eat when he returns home back to tie the knot! This will be the 'perfect' shot at his stomach! This recipe indeed, IMHO, justifies the saying, "The way to every man's heart is through his stomach!".
This recipe is pretty easy to make and the cookies look very nice. They taste even better. Everyone I've shared them with has loved them.
I thought that they were great and so did my family and my kids hardly ever eat sweets and well they ate these cookies right up
