This is one of my favorite cookies and there is so much you can do to change it. You can melt chocolate and coat the bottoms, you can put two together with chocolate or you can just do ribbons of chocolate on top. You can make it a very elegant cookie, let your imagination run wild. Roll into a cone and fill with fruit. You can shape them while they are warm. Put one on a side of a dish of ice cream. On and on....
