    You had me at the word cookie dough. Oddly enough I am not really a ‘sweets’ person but these both look and sound good. Everyone else would love them and I would lick the frosting off of one 🙂

    Poorly managed recipe. Baking soda or baking powder? And your instructions call to add both kinds of sugar, but you only list one.
