Questions, Comments & Reviews

I've been searching for this recipe, my sister used to make these but we called them barf cookies, I guess that is why I couldn't find the recipe!

These are a Christmas tradition in my family. I have them on my blog!

These are one of my husband's favorites!

A "few" years back, this is what my mother always made when it was my turn to take treats to the Pioneer Girl gatherings. Okay, stop laughing, maybe it was more than a few years. It was something quick for her to whip up, since she had a tendency to forget until the last minute, and we usually always had the ingredients. Thanks for bringing back memories of my Mom.

These are delicious!!
