    QueenBee49444's Note:

    From the book "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder" by Joanne Fluke. I read the book while on vacation this summer & I would like to pass the book on to my swap partner in the Used Media Swap on Zaar. The book has some delicious sounding cookie recipes which I am post here so I can make them later. The author does not indicate the serving size or prep time - I guessed & I apologize if I am wrong. I will correct when I make the recipe. If you make it before me, please post a review so we will know how good they are. One more note - the book was a fun read too.

    4. 4
      Let cool to room temperature.

      This are so easy to make. And very delicious. I've never made a sugar cookie before with powder sugar in it. Just wonderful.
