These taste so much better than the store-bought kind! I made them for Halloween with m&m's on top and they disappeared in two days!

I have been making these cookies for years after finding it in Taste of Home - my copy is getting old, glad it's here so I can throw it away! My family loves these and anyone I ever make them for, agree they are yummy goodness.
