Loved them

I really liked these. Over the weekend, it was rainy--stormy, etc., so I put in a good old mystery "who dun it", made a batch of these, and had myself a wonderful time!

Disappearing Cookies

I make cookies every week for my husband to take to work for the people in the office. And though I get all my cookie recipes from, these went the fastest! They are soft and the tea makes them similar to ginger snaps in flavor. Tealicious!

The greatest proof of a recipe is to let my grandchildren try it. They rate this as their favorite cookie so far. Thank you for this recipe.
