    I have the cookbook that this recipe is in.."Best Of The Pillbury Bake-Off cookies & bars" in fact the picture of this cookie is on the front of the cookbook cover. When I purchased the cookbook the employee of "Borders" said that they looked scrumptious and "wanted them" ...so I baked them and brought him some. He was really surprised. These cookies are scrumptious.Just had to share that story with you.
