These little hummers melt in your mouth!=) This recipe makes 10 dozen "mini" cookies. The dough freezes well and is great to have on hand for unexpected guests.

These are really good. Make sure though that they are made at they place they are to be served because they do not travel well. Also make sure to cool completely on the cookie sheet and take extra care when removing them because they do break easily. I also found that it is better if these are made the 1" size so they can be popped in your mouth at one time. Anything larger causes a mess!
