What a fun cookie! I halved the recipe and still ended up with alot! I served these at my ladies Bible study group and they were devoured in no time! Everyone loved the fact that they were so different for the ordinary. The cookies held their "drop" shape while they baked, so if you are planning to ice them I would recommend rolling them into balls and flattening slightly. However these cookies are super even without the added icing! Thanks for sharing this fun treat!
