*A good friend of mine made me this decadent cookies over tea last week and gave me some to bring home. My boys gobbled everything and asking for more. I am very grateful and fortunate my friend shared this family recipe. I give her all the credit πŸ™‚ This is the joy of cooking when you share and it creates memories or even as simple as a smile after one bite. enJOY!!!Β  Β
