This cookies have been a success in my house. They are deliciously scrumptious with a touch of chocolate. They are sensational. The recipe was adapted from a book a dear friend gave me years ago, Cookies 200 Inspirational Cookie Recipes. I have tried several of the 200 recipes and have loved them all so far. If you find this book I encourage you to get it and start baking.


You all know by now how much a love a versatile recipe and this cookies don’t disappoint. If you omit the chocolate and dip each end of the fingers into pink or blue chocolate melts they are fabulous for a baby shower. Chocolate melts comes in a wide variety of colors and even flavors, the options are endless. Take your creativity to a whole new level!
