"Don't let the simplicity of this recipe turn you off, these are gourmet cookies! Not only did they look beautiful with it's overflowing mix-ins but the rich taste was outstanding. They also make a great bar dessert. Simply put into greased 11 x 13 glass pan, bake 350 degrees about 20 minutes. Keep a close on it so it doesn't over bake. They look fabulous on a dessert table!

Update: Have made these using one box of Krusteaz Sugar cookie Mix. Equally wonderful."

"These taste GREAT! Want to make them REALLY festive looking? Melt white chocolate chips or almond bark with a spoonful of vegetable shortening. Let cool. Put in a piping bag and pipe "drizzles" across each cookie."

"Made these cookies today, but made them using a 3-lb. tub of cookie dough which I had purchaed from the bakery dept. Since I used a 3-lb tub of cookie dough, I added 2-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, 1-1/2 cups of ivory white chips, then divided the dough in half, and to one half I added 3/4 cup of dried cranberries, and to the other, I added 3/4 cup of dried cherries, and to both halves I added, 3/4 cup of chopped pecans. I used my Pampered Chef

medium scoop (2 tablespoon scoop) to make each cookie, then I rolled each into a dough ball, and then flattened each somewhat onto a Pampered Chef Stoneware to bake the cookies. Baked the cookies exactly for 15 minutes. Mmm, both kinds of cookies tasted good, but personally I think I prefer the dried cranberries over the dried cherries. Louise, these cookies were very good, and I'd like to thank you for the recipe."

"Store did not have refrigerated sugar cookie dough, so I bought the packets of cookie mix and followed the directions for drop cookies. I added in the other ingredients from the recipe. They were delicious!"
