Oh, these are some yummy cookies! Crispy outsides, chewy insides….and they stay that way for at least 5 days. I haven’t eaten one yet today but I bet they are still the same today too! The recipe came from the back of the Trader Joe’s Peppermint Bark Pieces bag. I have to say that I have fallen in love with Trader Joe’s. The store is close by to where I work so I have spent many lunch breaks browsing the store. I haven’t bought anything from there yet that we don’t love.
These are a definite keeper for your cookie list! I sprinkled a little grey sea salts on top of some of the cookies and it gave them that extra special bite every once and a while. I just love sweet and salt don’t you?
