Rose Del Deserto

Please allow me to introduce you to the newest cookie in our line up. Rose Del Deserto. The recipe is from Italian Sons and Daughters of America. The recipe reminds me of my Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. But this one is rolled in Corn Flakes or Special K in this case. The taste, really good. Not too sweet. Almost like a cannoli cookie. Yeah, this will be in heavy rotation.
