I crafted this recipe for a christmas cookie swap at work this year... I have tried to recreate the same great texture and taste of Italian Creme Cake in these cookies. I hope you enjoy!

Cookies are VERY tasty and I will definitey make them again. HOWEVER, the instructions for how to make the recipe are inaccurate - eggs are on the ingredient list, however they are not on the list of instructions. NOTE: Add eggs to the cookie batter :-)
