Yes they are amazing as they LOOK!
I think we ate half the cookie dough. These little wonders are light, delicious and a great change up from your normal chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie...(but who am I kidding I love those too!)
Next week I will be serving these for a Women Inspired Women's Event here in my home. Ck them out on facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/womeninspired?ref=ts
I know I will have some happy women!
Enjoy and happy fall my friends.
