Always a favorite around the holidays. I found the baking time to be too long, burnt the sugars, so made it again and cut baking time in half.

I've saved this recipe in my "To Do" file quite some time ago, but somehow kept passing it by. However the other day, I received them from chef #946146, my partner in the 2008 Holiday Cookie Swap. These are so wonderful!!!! DH keeps going back for more. :) No excuse not to make them now.

My good this is soooo good. Easy to make and my husband and his friends made them up... I will make them every time I have to bring something to a party.
