As much as I delight in sharing these goodies, my family considers them "keepers". It's a wonder I ever get them out the door to take to meetings! With their butter melt-in-your mouth texture, they're always popular.

"this is the best cookie recipe I have ever made. I can't have nuts so I used 1/2 cup of minature caermels. I had to make a double recipe."

"These had a very good flavor, but I didn't like the texture or taste of the melted Whopper candies in this cookie. If I make these in the future I will try chocolate chips instead of the candy."

"I LOVE this cookie recipe, but I modify it just a bit. I use granular Splenda for the 1/2 C sugar and Splenda Brown Sugar blend for the 1/2 C brown sugar. I also use 1 C coconut in place of the malted milk balls.

No one can tell they are lower in sugar and the coconut makes them chewy. I've never had anyone say no to a second cookie! :)"
