This is by far my easiest recipe during my 25 Days Of Baking. It also happens to be one of my favorites. This is a fun recipe to do with a partner because it does come together very fast and it helps to have multiple hands working. They are perfect for cookie exchanges or as a little treat to bring to those dozens of holiday parties we all have this time of year. Be careful though, once you put these little goodies out they won’t last long. We made these last night and we only have half of them left!
