I made this wonderful cookie exactly the way the recipe says and it was a delicious new flavor combination. It was just like written above - "One bite and your taste buds will burst".

This is the other Land o Lakes cookie recipe at the top of my list (see Cherry Rum Ribbons). This is a chocolate cookie for sophisticated tastes. The variety of spices make it different and wonderful.
