Best right out of oven

These are great right out of the oven, and even taste good after a week. I added macadamia nuts in a second batch for a bit more crunch!

I made these to give away as Christmas gifts. Somehow I ended up with extras and must have ate half a dozen by myself! I will making these again very soon. Sooo yummy and so very easy to make. These are a guarenteed hit.

So easy!

I made these for a cookie swap and was so happy with how they came out. Incredibly easy, great flavor, enjoyed by all who tasted them. This will definitely become a part of my holiday baking list from now on.

Merry Cranberry Cookies

This will be a new addition to my holiday baking. You can also use cookie mix and I just drizzled 10X sugar glaze on top. Family loved them!

Easy and wonderful

Made these with my high school home ec. class for a cookie exchange fund raiser; they were super easy! Unfortunately, they looked so good, the school lunch ladies served them for lunch instead!!! At least I know I can make more quick.
