***** These also can be made with Andes Cherry Jubilee or Andes Toffee Crunch Thins.*****

I made these for a baby shower, and I know the instructions may look hard, or like a lot to follow, but once you get going its easy! I added food coloring to the dough to make them pink, her baby colors are pink,brown and green. :)

Like in my other cookie recipes, I use a baking stone and they turn out amazing as well, although, I suggest leaving them on the stone a bit longer than a pan to cool.

***An easy way to keep cookies soft a few days longer, put a piece of bread in the container with them.***
