    Chef #318027's Note:

    I'm from New York and trying to find a good baker in Florida to buy these has been hard, so I made my own and they are a hit. I usually have to make double batches because they are gone the first day!

      I loved these cookies and kept on eating them. Unfortunately no one was helping me out which is very bad for two reasons 1) What is wrong with everyone ? 2) I hate dieting. I think my kids are perhaps used to a lighter rainbow cake and these were pretty dense and very moist. I can't explain it otherwise since they were so beautiful and yummy. Made for PAC Fall '08.
