Wow!! I love these. Very nice flavor, kinda crispy, kinda chewy at the same time. 12 minutes of baking is perfect. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe.

I always try new cookies at holiday time. These cookies went as fast as my choco-chip cookies. These have become a new holiday give away cookie along with many others. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
