Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I had a little difficulty with these cookies Pat. They didn't cook very well, for me. Took 20 - 25 minutes for them to cook. They were quick and easy to make, we found them a little bland tasting. They did taste better the following day. Drizzled with a little extra dark Belgium chocolate. Thanks for sharing. Made FYC Tag Game 2015.
