This recipe inspired me by one of our guests. Tom visits us every October, however this October, he has to attend a wedding on the same date he usually stays with us. I guess where I am going with this, is that I got thinking about him the other day and craving these cookies that he usually brings with him. Since I won’t be seeing him this year, I thought I would try to recreate these yummy cookies. I don’t think I did too bad, but they don’t compare with Toms. I am thinking if I made them a little larger and didn’t bake them as long, I might be pretty darn close. I am going to keep working on it, but I wanted to share with you anyway since I have eaten about a dozen of them.
