    It is definately off the beaten path Julie. But, thanks to a very helpful Subway employee, we were able to find it. Be warned that the actual shop is VERY tiny. I had the cinnamon raisin peanutbutter with cream cheese and Granny Smith apple slices. It was very good. I think Rebecca had the white chocolate and Alysia had the Elvis without the bacon. Jordan got a plain pb&j

    Johnie - I made these last night and they are just wonderful!! Dh is hiding them way in the back of the cabinet and has growled at anyone who comes close to his cookies Everything worked just perfect, but I do have to say it was a bit of a mistake to start them so late at night. I thought that I had time to make one more cookie before bed

    So if I had to put a warning on these cookies...it makes like 100,000 so leave plenty of time! When I mixed up that h u g e bowl of dough I was like Oh geez.. They are wonderful though..thank you!!

    It called for the dough to be done by the tsp full and I did more like a full tablespoon (no sense in making tiny cookies with Dh around) and I think I ended up with more than 8 dozen It was a crazy big bowl of dough

    they are my favorite cookies.

    The very first time I made them, I decided to save money and buy walnuts in the shell. Oh.my.goodness.....never again. Shelled walnuts are worth EVERY PENNY
