A few years ago these were all over Pinterest for Christmas cookies. I had never seen them before but everyone was talking about how their mom or they used to make these all the time. I didn’t try them. I am like that. When something is popular I tend to go the other way. Maybe somewhere down the road I will try it but I am not going to read a book, see a movie, or make a recipe because everyone else is.
But, as we were looking for cookies to make this one popped up again and I thought it was time to finally make them.
These were okay. They were not overly sweet and were good for ice cream sandwiches. I don’t think I would make them for a Christmas cookie but they were okay.
I preferred them in the ice cream sandwiches but they were pretty good if you don’t want an overly sweet cookie.
