Review This Recipe
Tasty - and pretty - cookie
Made these for a church reception and they were greatly enjoyed. Apparently I made them a little small as I got more than stated and they baked faster than specified (watch them!). As a result, I ran out of "eggs" and finished up with another small solid chocolate candy which worked well also. Will make again.
