Reviews for Licorice Cookie Strips
"I have been making these cookies since they were first published! I made them for my grandfather for Christmas and some years later after losing the recipe I was thrilled to find it online! These are a Christmas tradition and so delicious!"
"My husband's favorite is black licorice, so I had to try these. Now I have to make them at least once a month. You simply MUST eat them with vanilla ice-cream - it's outrageously luscious!"
