I recently got into a cookie baking mood and I started playing around with different ingredient combinations. I'll admit that some of my creations were not as tasty as I had wished but, this Paradise Cookie turned into a keeper. I love all of the flavors separately and in combination. Give them a try. This recipe makes over 5 1/2 dozen 3-4 inch cookies.
