Recipe by mary winecoff

From Oprah's O Magazine November 2009. Easy to do with only 4 ingredients, this would be nice on those cookie spreads for Christmas.

The only thing wrong with these cookies is that they disappear too fast! I made them last night and there are only 5 left this morning. This is an incredibly easy recipe to make, too. I'll definitey be making them again. Made for Photo Tag.
