For some reason I get the feeling I'm on a caramel kick! hmm
Well the story behind this cute and yummy cookie is simple. Everyone seems to LOVE the Mexican Wedding Cookie or the Italian Wedding Cookie or Russian Tea Cakes...I didn't mind them, but they weren't a favorite by any means...so I thought I'd play with it and try to please everyone AND me...
This is what I came up with I hope you will like it.
You could half this recipe I would think...when I create the batches get on the larger side :)
