this is delicious, with either homemade or canned cranberry sauce and it looks very colorful.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2010

I have been making this recipe for years now--it it my most asked-for cookie!

I omit the chips; use fat-free 14oz Eagle brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (not evaporated milk), and store the finished cookie (cut into squares) in the freezer (has a scrumptious taste when eaten frozen!!)

This cookie treat is definately a keeper for all the holidays
