  1. Susan, these cookies look so tempting. They don’t really go well with my new way of eating – that being said, I have to splurge sometimes!

  2. It’s almost 10pm and I am caving these! yum!! I bake with my daughter every Sunday, and these are going on our list of sweets to make 🙂

    1. Approximately 5-6 dozen, depending on how large you make the cookies. These are always a hit with my family and when I take them to parties, Kay, so they’d be a great choice for an exchange. Have fun baking.
