These wonderful cookies are moist and yummy. People are always asking for the recipe. They are so easy to make and look fantastic in cookie trays. Orginally, this recipe appeared on the side of a Duncan Hines red velvet food cake mix. I tweaked the recipe a little to suit my taste. Once cooled, stuff your little mouth till you explode;)
