I can't believe I forgot to review these! This spring, my church's youth group held a bake sale and I made these and put 2 cookies in those cardboard red and white serving containers you see in restaurants and cafeterias. They were so adorable. My preacher laughed when he saw them, then promptly bought some! Thanks for this adorable recipe!
