MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2014

This is a very good recipe and nice to bring to a party when you want something special and out of the ordinary, but very portable to take to a picnic! As a TOH field editor, I try many new recipes and this is a keeper!

I've made these several times to take to work and they are requested all the time. The chewyness of the cookie and cream go perfect together. Cookies are also great plain, the flavor is delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
