there's a special taste that make them... not so ordinary. you have to be careful though not to bake the cookies too much, or they will be too crunchy!

I had also made the Strawberry Sandwich Cookies but these took the cake! People were amazed and they are so amazingly indulgent!! Definitely a hit - specially right out of the fridge!
