This recipe comes from my Kroger Magazine. I tweaked it some and changed the name because the new name fits it better. These cookies ARE rapturous! Not overly sweet, just sweet enough. And they were fun to make--the kids will love helping! Preparation is a bit time consuming but well worth it. You have to try these! 02-11-15
