Doreen's notes for this recipe:
These are awesome cookies!! While I was on Vancouver Island I participated in the Farmers Market with my soap...across from me was this lady that made these cookies and sold them for a dollar each...
I had one every Saturday morning at the market...so delicious...she only shared the recipe with me because I was leaving the island!! Enjoy all!!
