These cookies/ biscuits were just delicious, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed them and they were gone in 10 minutes after they were out of the oven, ALL OF THEM! (that’s how good they are!) The great thing about them is that they take very little effort so when you’re feeling like a tasty baked goodie that’s hustle free- this is it right here!
