Took me a lot longer than 15 minutes to play around with these cookies, but don't get me wrong, 'cause I love 'playing around' in the kitchen! And, THESE LITTLE BUGGERS ARE A GREAT TREAT! I kept a good portion of them inside while setting out the rest to encourage lookie-loues to check out what I had on my park-wide garage sale tables! I look forward to making these during the winter holidays! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Went to the Market cooking game]
