Dreamsicle Cookies

Recipe by Nana RJ

This is truly a different type of cookie. When mixed with a plate full of cookies at a luncheon, these disappeared first and my guests all went home with the recipe.

These cookies really have a good flavor and do taste like a Dreamsicle. The batter is a bit thick and they don't really spread out much while baking, so it's adviseable not to make them any bigger than the suggested tablepooon size or so. I was also very skeptical of the high baking temp, luckily I kept my eyes on the first batch. At 375, I had to pull them out at 10 minutes because they were starting to burn. All other batches I did at 350 for 15 minutes on a greased cookie sheet. They turned out much better. After a day in an air-tight container they did harden up quite a bit. Given that the higher temp 10 minute time resulted in burning, perhaps trouble shooting the hardness with more butter or decreasing the flour will result in a softer cookie.
