These cookies were awful, even my kids would not eat them, sent the rest to my husbands office and told him not to say he brought them, all day he heard people asking 'where did these terrrible things come from?'

I must say that I STRONGLY disagree with the first review. I made these cookies for a family get together and they loved them so much and my family is rather picky. I will definatly be making much more to take with me to the christmas get together.
