Can't beat this for easy! Amazing how they bake just sitting in an oven that's turned off. Try them you'll like them. I do these at Christmas time for my goodie boxes

Yummy! So nice, they are rich, your lovely nature is the essence of this cookie. We all enjoyed it and I forgot for once that I'm trying to slim down:) These cookies have been nicknamed "Magical Cookies" by me, because of the way they bake in a switched-off oven, loved the concept. Oh I must mention that 8 hrs. after these were put in the oven and were done, they were quite soft, so in order to make them a little harder, I placed them in the freezer and they were a delicacy this evening. Thank You so much, love u!
