I came up with this recipe by combining 3 family favorite cookie recipes into one delicious amazing cookie. It's a soft cookie, with a cake-like texture. The taste is unique and when I sell them at bake sales they sell out immediately!

These cookies are soft on the inside and have a slight crunch on the outside. Just the way we like them. The cinnamon sugar on top tops these off perfectly! These go perfectly with a lovely cup of afternoon tea. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
