“Someone brought this cookie to an outing and they were so good I had to get the recipe. Now I'm passing it on. To make these really festive at Christmas, you could dip about one-quarter of it in a melted chocolate (white or dark) and then in sprinkles. They would jazz up a cookie tray and look very pretty.”
