Okay, sorry for not putting up posts. It has been a rough week... lots of tests. :P But that is what high school bio is! (And in case you were wondering, I got an A) But anyway these are easy cookies. Very easy. And soft and delicious. MMMMMM. And they look pretty darn good too. So - make, eat, love, enjoy!!
