My mom made these and sent a few over. I am ashamed to say I loved them so much I ate them all and did not share with my family. We will definitely be making these again.

I make these every year at Christmas time and everyone loves them!! They are easy to make when compared to cutting and frosting sugar cookies... Wherever I take them, I am asked for the recipe. Just be sure not to overbake them...they are so much better gooey than crunchy...lol.
