This recipe from my sister originally made a pie. But I decided to turn it into a cookie with mouthwatering results. They're so easy to make and very tasty.—Jessie Bethune, Trion, Georgia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 5, 2011

This is a delicious cookie -- slightly crisp on the outside and slightly chewy too. My co-workers LOVED it!! I extended the baking time by about 4 minutes. Next time I plan to substitute some Splenda for part of the cup of sugar. But it is Delicious!
