I JUST made these! I think this was one of Bethany's best kept secrets!! Thanks for sharing Melody! SOOOO easy and it's the cookie dough that just keeps on feels like Christmas over here & smells like it too! When you told me a few weeks ago, Melody, that you made 80-100 cookies, I thought you meant you kept making dough until you got it right, eventually making that many cookies..I had no idea this little recipe made that many!! It was like the bottomless bowl, I never thought I'd be done!
My family & a couple of Gage's friends have had some, we have company coming over for dinner, so I set some a side for that, 2 plates for visiting teaching tomorrow and I still have plenty to freeze for later! Thanks for sharing-- they are AWESOME!!
