      Ummmmm Ummmmmm GOOD!!! These were so easy to make and DELICIOUS!! For anyone like myself who had never made praline topping before, add the praline topping quickly to your cookies as the topping will start to harden as it cools. I kept mine on the stove on low and brought the cooling rack of cookies to the stove. These were a big hit with hubby who described them as a little taste of New Orleans.

      These cookies are AMAZINGLY delicious and the presentation is bakery quality! I entertain a lot and am always trying new recipes, especially around the holidays. Presentation is a big deal for me and these cookies look and taste DIVINE! They are very easy to make, but I must say they are a bit on the rich side so one cookie at a time is plenty for me!

      These were delicious! I made them to put on cookie trays for the neighbors. Of course we ate more than our fair share. Followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great! Thanks Kennasmommy!
