Nate has been telling me about how good these cookies are since we first started dating. His mom finally sent us the recipe, so we decided to try it out. The cookies turned out really delicious. And even though they probably aren't that healthy for you, you feel like you're eating something that is good for you because of the fresh fruit flavor.

  2. I made these and they are delicious. I shared some with the sisters we visited as a presidency and Sis. Hawkins said they might be the tastiest cookies she has ever had. :)
