Those cookies look really good. My mother-in-law makes a similar cookie. I am going to have to give yours a try :)

I just wanted to pass the word along that I am starting a new linky party called Fun w/Food Friday. Your blog has some amazing stuff that would be perfect to link up. If you have time this Friday, I would LOVE for you to stop by and link up a food related post.
