Those look so yummy; but I am on the South Beach Diet and those are a definite no-no. Darn-darn.

Cookies look good but I am avoiding making sweets this year except for the Christmas candy I have made every year for 40 plus years. It was a tradition started by my Mom.

Oh, those look so good! But you mentioned that they are hard to mix (in the post below). Don't know if my hands are up to it.
