“With a slightly crunchy exterior and a puffy, soft interior, this cookie satisfies both the crunchy and the soft cookie lovers. These look festive on a holiday cookie tray, but are delicious all year round! It's a creation born of several different recipes over the years. Using both butter and shortening is the secret to the dual texture. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! :)”
