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!
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.
