The Great Online Cookie Exchange Extravaganza

We are trying something new and off our usual game today! Recently, Jules discovered her love affair with cooking, but she has always been a tasty baker and loves to whip up yummy goodness in the kitchen. This recipe has been tried and true among many men in her life. Check out A Reluctant Bitch's blog for more tasty treats. Thank you Southern Living for this recipe and thank you Hedone for posting the link to this holiday fun!
