Mango Fudge Refrigerator Ribbon Cookies
I’ve always thought that a ribbon cookie is especially nice. Although it’s a single cookie, it really seems like two or three different cookies because of its lovely layers of flavor. These refrigerated ribbon cookies have a rich chocolate layer balanced by a bright, orange-mango layer—a very special combination. —Jeanne Holt, Mendota Heights, Minnesota
