I first downloaded this recipe on January 13th of 2001. It is kid tested; I have seven in my house, and the kids love them. I have made this recipe every year since 2001 and it is always a christmas favorite. I came back to this site because routinely I misplace this recipe and wanted a backup. I give it five stars, two thumbs, and all of my toes up!

The recipe is so too sweet... even my friend which we called her cookie monster couldnt accept the sweetness...
When i try it, it numbs my tongue. Even though the crunchiness is good, but the recipe is definitely putting up TOO MUCH SUGAR!!!
I put too much hope on it, its not even up to a normal expectation.

Nice, not too crisp. Just like expensive imported Belgian cookies. I added sliced almonds inside and on top before baking. They were pretty, too.
