All three of the desserts on this tray are in my SELF PUBLISHED cookbook OF 795 RECIPES, but I can only fit 2 of the recipes on one page. I will add the Chocolate chip cookie recipe in a separate recipe page. Both recipes are so easy and very tasty. There is never any left, after the party, or if there are, they ask to take some home, I am very happy to share. The peanut clusters are so easy to make, I often package in small zip lock bags and store in the freezer. The Kolachkies are very flakey, and all but melt in your mouth when you bite into one. They are awesome in flavor & taste.

    5NOTE: There is NO SUGAR in this recipe. The first time I made this recipe, I thought it was a mistake, because at the time I had never made a cookie without sugar. That was more than 35 years ago. I have been making & enjoying this recipe ever since with friends and family.
