An unusual name for a cookie but one bite... and you will completely agree, these are the most incredible melt-in-the-mouth cookies,probably one of the best and easiest I have ever made.The recipe is a total keeper and can be adapted to innumerable variations.My husband loved them,my in-laws loved them and so did I,would most definitely be baking these again.And will never be buying cookies from the bakery!:)
