Recipe by Karen..

I just saw these online and thought they would be great for Superbowl or any Sunday game get-together.

Top Review by weekend cooker

Well, I doubled the recipe. Lot of football to watch today, and figured they would be all gone by game time. Anyway, outstanding flavor and taste. A 4 star rating because they were done in 10 minutes, and almost burnt, but great cookies.
