I made this for a cookie exchange party, and they were GREAT! Very easy to make, and turn out not only yummy, but attractive looking as well. My Husband LOVED them. I found that doubling the recipe, and making the balls 1 inch around yielded much more than the recipe said, I got nine dozen out of it! So I had enough for my exchange, and then some!


This recipe is wonderful as a peanut blossom substitute. Our daughter is severly allergic to peanuts. Now she can have her kiss cookies. Nice and soft cookie. I don't roll mine in nuts and they are still delicious.


This was a wonderful addition to our Christmas baking!!Not too sweet and easy to make.I used Branches "Stars" to add something a little more festive.I had to make 5 batches becuase my friends and family couldnt get enough of them!Excellent recipe!
