Interesting & tasty little cookies & a bit different from the usual! My other half took most of them to share at work, & I'm already planning on making them again for several winter holiday get-togethers I'll be hosting! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Mine must have been a bit small as I got 30 and they took 12 minutes to bake at 175 degree C in a fan forcded oven. Took to the DS's recreation group and they loved them.. Thank you Sheynath. Made for Swap #16 - May 2008.
