  1. These Neopolitan cookies are soooo very good--the best recipe for this cookie I have ever had! I have to try anything from FAS that is absolutely scrumptious and leaving me wanting more. Definitely are great recipe for bakers and gift givers.

  2. Typo above...I meant to type: I have YET to try anything that ISN'T absolutely scrumptious----I need to wake up, sorry! :)
