    riley_68's Note:

    I love these cookies! They are sooo good & always come out perfectly done. Evryone I've ever made them for compliments them. (The only problem is it makes 10 dozen, althought I guess that could be a good thing....) I got this recipe from Joanne Fluke's book Peach Cobbler Murder.

      I'm a huge Hannah Swensen fan, and I was so excited to make these cookies. Unfortunately, they were just OK for me. They spread way too much and I just hate that. The flavors were great, though. Probably won't try this again, but it was a fun experiment.
