I’m going to warn you…these cookies are so addictive. I’m not even exaggerating when I say that I think that these are the best cookies ever. My MIL made some one year and filled a cookie jar for the annual Christmas gift exchange. We all fought over it – kids and grownups alike, stealing the precious jar in lieu of grabbing a new present.
These were so good that I had even asked her to make some for our wedding gift bags. 800 glorious cookies. I’m pretty certain that those bags got opened right away and the contents eaten before anyone even got home. AND, i kid you not – people are still talking about the cookies. Make these…and make lots!
