These crisp treats lend a different shape to a cookie tray. And they're easy to prepare— just press into a pan, bake and break. My family enjoys them during the holidays and all year long.

"These were very good! easy to make and everyone loved them. I used all butter because I didn't have any shortening and they still came out great. They taste like crunchy chocolate chip cookies. I will definitely make again."
