I first made this recipe for a cookie swap about 5 years ago and it has been a Holiday staple ever since. These are fabulous cookies. Make sure you try one when it is still warm, it literally melts in your mouth.
The texture after rehydrating isn't so good I would serve this on it's own. I find keeping this mix around is great when you want to make 7 layer dip or use refried beans in burritos, tacos or enchiladas. It's a great way to use that big bag of dried beans as well!
