Top Review by Farbunkle

For some reason I have gone crazy this Christmas and decided to make an enormous amount of different kinds of cookies. I chose these because they looked like they would be different from any I had made so far. They are TRULY addictive...I am almost burned out on cookies but these made me crave more! I recommend them hightly. Easy and delish. You won't be dissapointed.Thanks Nancy...these have already become a tradition.
