This recipe was passed on to me by my good friend Danielle M. I probably make these at least twice a month. THEY ARE DEVINE. Whenever I take them to a party, or dinner- I always get the response of, “these are the best cookies I have ever had”. Once you try this recipe, it will instantly become a favorite. I bet you can’t eat just one…

Here’s how I made them:

First of all, I want to share one of my favorite baking tips. I really believe sifting your flour makes a difference, but it can also be a big pain. My favorite little trick is to fluff up my flour in a bowl using a fork- works just as well and takes seconds.
